The warmer fall weather held out in New England yesterday, allowing us a fun playground adventure with four of our five grandchildren. They were all looking so adorable in their little hipster hats and handknits gifted by friends and family (but alas, not by me). All this cuteness reminded be that I really need to knit for them too! I admit to paying more attention to my work knitting than to my grandchild knitting. With the holidays coming, I am determined to rectify that situation. Time to search the Berroco archives for the best of our easy baby patterns. That’s easy knitting (and crochet) patterns – the babies themselves don’t have to be easy!
I went to the pattern search page for the quickest way to find easy baby patterns.
Then I used the filters along the left column of the pattern page to narrow my search. I found some great grandchild gift ideas simply by clicking on the “Baby/Children” under the “Project Type” category.
I could have filtered for only knitting too, but I like how quick and versatile crochet can be, too. Here are some of my favorites:
Arshile – I love a classic guernsey on a little one!
Battenberg Blanket – Blankets stand the test of time.
Citron Blanket – Remember being little and hiding under your towel as if you were invisible?
Sofo – Gingham! It’s can be woodsy or girly, depending on the colors you choose.
Sunday Best Dress – is just plain pretty.
What do you like to knit or crochet for babies?
