With Easter just upon us and Spring on the way it won’t belong before babies can shed the bulky outdoor coats and show off the beautiful hand knitted coats and cardigans mum or gran have lovingly created.
I have a growing collection of baby patterns which I love browsing to select something to knit. I love this little pink set, so pretty and very straight forward to knit.
Knitted in DK, the skirt gently gathers into the yoke which gives it a lovely shape, and it’s just as pretty at the back.
The lacy panels are easy to do, they are a short repeat, so easy to memorise and quickly knit up. The bonnet goes well with the coat and I knitted some little booties to go with the coat.
Instead of ribbon I made two i cords for the bonnet and made two little bobbles for the ends.
The above little coat is another favourite of mine, knitted this many times especially when my own children were young. For this little set I knitted a pair of Mary Jane shoes embellished with a little lace and embroidered roses.
Not to forget the boys, here is a little blue set, which has cables in the front panel and finished with some cute little Peter Rabbit buttons.
A little bobble hat and booties completes the little set.
