Baby Knit Patterns

What a terrific pattern, I love the favecraft people. They really come up with some great patterns when you are knitting for baby. I know you love this one, it is too pretty, and can be for a girl or a boy baby.

A wonderful Squidoo Lens about baby knit patterns Some interesting ideas for knitting, very helpful.

Gorgeous soft knit baby blanket. Truly gorgeous, Not for the beginning knitter. But so worth it. This is a wonderful Baby knit pattern

What a great look. This pattern is labeled as Easy, and it is perfect for the little one. I really enjoy baby knit patterns that can be finished in a relative short time. A great take along project too.

This is adorable and an easy to make baby knit pattern. I love the color change in this yarn, but you could certainly make this with a solid color or even one of the fancy speicalty yarns. The point is the pattern is easy to follow and really cute.

I am not sure if this is so precious because of the pattern or this little girl. Either way it caught my attention. I am always looking for new baby knitting patternsfor my collection. I thought others might like this one as well.

Note: An easy way to pick up sts evenly is to divide the bound-off edge of the skirt into sections, then pick up sts within each section. Use pins mark the sections as follows: fold piece in half to find the center, then mark center with a pin. Fold again to find center of each half of piece, mark each of these points with a pin. The bound-off edge of the skirt is now divided into quarters. To pick up sts evenly, pick up as follows:
For 12 months size, pick up and k10 sts in first quarter section of skirt, pick up and k 11 sts in each of next 3 quarter sections.
For 2 yrs size, pick up and k12 sts in first section, 13 sts in second section, 12 sts in third section and 13 sts in fourth section.
