Simple Knitting Patterns Really Have A Special Place

 Complicated is Out Simple Knitting Patterns Are Beautiful

You know some people think if they are not knitting some complicated, cabled, multi colored, or pattern changing baby knitting pattern, they are failures.  Well let me tell you, simple knitting baby patterns certainly have a very special place in my knitting repertoire. And I’ll tell you why, they’re simple.

Really, I’m serious. Can you knit a really complicated pattern if you want to spend time with your family, watching TV or a movie? If you are waiting in the doctor’s office and you are listening for your name to be called, can you pull out your terribly complicated baby knitting pattern and go for it? If you are taking a traveling vacation and you are riding passenger as you travel across the most beautiful scenery and you don’t really want to miss it but you want to knit also, is a pattern that you have to keep count and keep track of pattern changes, the best choice? Have you gotten my point yet?

Simple Knitting Patterns

In the above scenarios, a simple baby knitting pattern would fit the bill. You don’t have to worry about losing count or using more than your two needles and your not worry about the upcoming color change and you aren’t trying to keep track of your cable needles and when to do it next. It is just easy, simple and pleasant knitting.

I love mindless knitting, just me, gorgeous yarn and my two needles. A baby blanket, bath towel, wash cloths or bunting, it is simple straight forward wonderful simple baby knitting. Plus it is something that you will be able to complete in a reasonable amount of time. But what if you like those complicated patterns, I do.

You have to consider, how many doctor’s appointment, or movies or vacations will you have, watch or take. You can always work on your more complicated patterns when your life allows.

Maybe the moral to this story is, if you are serious about your knitting and you love it as much as I do, you will have all kinds of baby knitting patterns. Easy, simple, cables, pattern changing, color changing wonderful and always ongoing knitting patterns.

I have several projects in different stages of completion all the time. I think it is the true caliber of a fine knitter. And simple baby knitting patterns are among my most favorite. I hope yours too.

Baby Bootie Knit Patterns-Let Nothing Stop You From Knitting

Don’t Let Our Busy Lives Stop Us From Enjoying our Baby Knitting Patterns

Baby Knitting Patterns, what??!! Are you kidding. There are some days I am certain two or three hours have gone missing. There just isn’t enough time! On some days it seems like not enough time for anything. No fun or play just work and clean and worry. I am sure you recognize in this world there is plenty to worry about, but I think that is the very reason we need to make time for play too.

Sometimes, it is the place to knit. Some people feel that they need a special place. That lovely rocking chair or a special craft room, or me, I love sitting on my deck in the evening, listening to the sounds of nature and knitting all my baby knitting patterns. But if I can’t get to my deck, maybe it is raining, should that mean that I don’t knit that day.

                                                    baby knitting patterns

Sometimes, we have a schedule to keep, house to clean, meals to cook, children to bathe, an perhaps a job to work. Well some of us are so regimented that we will not allow ourselves the “luxury” of some “me” time. Rubbish! We need it!

If we have schedules to keep, why not “schedule” your time to include some knitting?

I guarantee you will never regret it. You will feel better, be happier and more tolerant of the world around you.

The point of this post is to encourage all of us, myself included not to forget the importance of allowing ourselves some relaxation time. To allow ourselves the opportunity to soul search or meditate or simply think of nothing. But to have the time to do something we really enjoy doing, in this case, knitting.

Think of the message we are sending our children. I am harried, frantic and grumpy because there isn’t enough time in the day. Or, I am important too, and I am going to make the best use of the time I have, balanced between work and play.

So go ahead and try it. Give yourself permission to enjoy the basic pleasure of knitting our precious baby knitting patterns.

Take Along Knitting Projects-Hidden Time You Can Find It Too!!

I have discovered some unused time in my life. It is so exciting because I am always looking for more time.

Really…I am too busy, I can’t find time to do all the things I need or better yet, WANT to do. I love to knit my baby knitting patterns. When am I supposed to do it?

I know you know what I mean! There is the house, the pets,the yard, the job, the online job, many of you have kids on top of that!When are we supposed to knit! For crying out loud!

Well like I said, I found some unused time. Very special and very, up to know, hidden time… Riding in the car!!

When my husband and I are driving somewhere, he is driving,I am riding. Sometimes hours can pass with nothing more than stopping at McDonald’s for a fountain coke to complete the ride with.

Do you see where I am going with this? You bet! All those hours can really be put to much better use. In fact the last 2 hour trip my husband and I took, I completed a baby blanket I had started months ago, but couldn’t find any time to finish it.

IT’S DONE!!

I am so thrilled. I am really excited. Sometimes I was resistant when my husband would want to drive somewhere, but now I am ready to go. Before I felt it was wasted time, I had guilt, I should be doing something productive or meeting some goal. Now I am doing just that. I am productive, and meeting a goal.

I am relaxing and feeding my love of knitting.

It was a wonderful discovery. I hope you will put it to use too. Get those baby knit patterns out and get going!  Hidden hours we each have in our week. Have fun with them!!

A Little Forethought in Choosing Your Baby Knit Patterns

Let Your Baby Knit Patterns Make Your Knitting Fun and Rewarding

Have you decided what you might want to knit? Something simple and easy for a beginner. Something small. Okay, you are just learning the difference between a knit and a purl. You have to decide on some baby knit patterns to get started, well I suggest you start with a baby knit blanket.

Why? Because it is easy and it is a job you can complete in a reasonable length of time. Also it is worked on straight needles, which in my opinion is one of the easiest ways to learn knitting. You can make it any size, color or texture. The sky is the limit. Also it is a portable project. You can take it along. It is so fun to knit wherever you are, in the doctor’s waiting room, waiting for the arrival of your friend at the airport. Waiting to purchase the latest concert tickets camped out in line since 5am, see what I mean?

There are tons of baby knit patterns all over the web. So find one you like and then go shopping.

baby knit patternsbbay knit patternsbaby knit Pattern

If you know the color scheme of the baby you are knitting for, nursery, the choice is simple. Or if you already know the sex of the baby before it arrives you are all set. If you do not know these two things and you are still interested in these baby knit patterns, then just go for it. Choose a color that you like that would be kind of generic for any baby. When you go to the yarn shops you will be dazzled by the choices. There are many many colors and textures. There are soft fuzzy ones and tweedy ones, and richly textured, touchable yarns. This will be the hard part making your choices.

Once you have your choices. Be sure to read your pattern and purchase enough yarn to complete your baby knit pattern. You want it to be one color lot number. But as mentioned in previous posts, you don’t have too much worry because you are really only purchasing a small quantity for such a small piece. So you can actually afford to take a look at those wonderfully expensive yarns, if you so decide. Of course, you may want to try you hand at knitting on less expensive yarn to just get the hang of it.

I’ll tell you a little secret that has saved me so many times, it is really necessary that I share it with you. When you find baby knit patterns, or any pattern for that matter, that you like, save it! You must organize your patterns. I have a small filing cabinet with dividers, blankets, caps, booties, dresses, etc. And then I put a sticky note on each pattern,

“easy to knit”

“add 10 extra stitches in width”

“real winner with mother”

“takes a bit of work but worth the effort”

“great take along project”

“not so great for fuzzy yarn, better in cotton”

you get the drift here. Tell yourself reminders about the pattern to make your next knitting of it more fun.

I can’t tell you the hours I have wasted looking through drawers and magazines for a pattern that I knew I had but couldn’t find it. If someone would have told me this secret when I started it would have been so time saving and valuable to me. So I hope this helps you.

And I hope you get started on your first baby knit patterns and make that gorgeous new baby blanket for the next little someone coming into your life. Have fun!

Baby Knitting Patterns – Yes! I Prefer Them

No, No, I am not sorry I started a new knitting project, but I am a very busy woman. I am a registered nurse working 3-4 12 hour sifts a week, and I am an online business woman, and I squidoo. So when do I have any time, especially free time.

Well, if you have read my blog at all, you know that I love knitting, I do every chance I get. One of my favorite times to knit is on break at work, I can actually have an uninterrupted hour of joy. So why am I lamenting?

Remember the blog post I made about the bargain yarn I found and bought, because I just had to have it, It was so beautiful, what was I to do, I bought it. Well after you buy something like that, so gorgeous, so must have, you eventually decide to make something with it. Thus the lament.

I started an adult knitting project. Can you believe that?! I now have a huge project going, it is so much larger than what I am used to. I have to change colors and it has cables, It is really very pretty, it is a sweater. I am sure I will love it, it is already very nice, but it is inconvenient and heavy and I can’t take it with me anymore, now that it is a bit too big to haul to work with me.

So now I am trying to force time out of thin hair, I want to finish it, really I do. But of course, I have stuffed my work bag with one of my baby knitting projects that is small, quick and easy to carry, and that I love so much.

I will finish my new project and I will wear it proudly. Maybe it shows me to be a grown-up knitter now. And what’s more I probably will do other grown-up knitting projects. I have enjoyed it and who knows I might someday find extra time just lying around, you never know. But for now, I am going to stick to my first love…baby knitting patterns.

A Baby Knitting Pattern Can Give You Hours of Creativity

Baby Knitting Patterns Offer Limitless Opportunities to Enjoy Your Knitting Experience

Whether you are new to knitting or an old pro, a baby knitting pattern is one that almost always tugs at the heartstrings. There are very few things that are sweeter and more fun to knit than baby blankets for a baby yet to be born or newly born.

These sweet baby blankets just seem to fly off the needle whether you are using an easy baby knitting pattern or a more advanced pattern. If you want something more challenging there are plenty of baby knitting patterns all over the internet and at your local knit shop.

 

Baby Knitting Pattern

 

Many times when you purchase yarn, the manufacturer will provide a pattern on the packaging, and many times it is a baby knitting pattern. In fact, they work very hard to make patterns that are ideally suited for specific yarn. I do recommend using the yarns recommended whenever possible in order to encourage these companies to continue to provide these patterns to consumers at no cost.

If you are looking for something a little different than a blanket to knit for babies, try finding a baby knitting pattern for a newborn hat or booties. These projects are generally quick to finish and a lot of fun. In fact, you can probably knit one to completion while waiting in the waiting room for the baby to make his or her debut.

Knitting can be a relaxing hobby it can also be a very challenging way in which to pass your time. Make sure, especially if this is your first knitting project, that you choose a baby knitting pattern that matches your abilities. In addition to choosing the right pattern, you want to make sure that you have all the extras you will need.

Follow the instructions on your baby knitting pattern in order to find out what size knitting needles, what type of yarn, and any other items you may need such as stitch markers. If you follow the instructions and have chosen an appropriate difficulty, you will be well on your way to a beautiful heirloom for some lucky baby.

Sometimes it is a good idea to buy some patterns that have multiple sizing offered in the pattern. If you discover that you enjoy that pattern or it is an easy knitting pattern that you can easily complete, you might knit it more than once. You could choose different yarn, color and textures and then knit it again as the baby grows.

Baby clothing is so small and so precious and yet so fleeting. Most babies will grow into and outgrow many outfits during their first year of life. While knitting isn’t exactly a cheap way to go, you can knit clothing for special occasions with whole skeins of yarn and even have fun knitting sweaters, hats, and such for babies out of remnant yarns that are similar in textures and weights. The trick always comes down to finding the one baby knitting pattern that will grow with your baby.

If you plan to knit many clothes for your children or even as gifts for other people’s children, I recommend keeping a notebook with a sample of the yarn and the care instructions for that particular yarn. If giving the clothing as a gift, be sure to slip the parents this information as well. You can simply tape the yarn label to a piece of notebook paper with the yarn beside it if you need to and hand it to the parents at an appropriate moment. This will save lots of worry and a few garments from accidentally becoming baby doll clothes.

A baby knitting pattern is often the most enjoyable to select. These patterns can also be quite frustrating to choose as well, they are all simply too cute for words and choosing just one when there are so many is often quite difficult. My suggestion for this is narrow the patterns down to 3 or 4 that you really like, then look at the difficulties of each pattern, the materials required for each pattern, and how interesting each pattern looks to knit. This will help you narrow your choice significantly. If all else fails, buy them all, I’m sure you’ll have the opportunity to use them eventually!

Baby Blanket Knitting Pattern- Try Using Baby Soft Yarn

Baby Yarn Doesn’t Have To Be Only For Babies

It occurred to me one of the reasons I love knitting for babies is the yarn. I mean really have you thought about this? It is soooooooo soft and squishy, hold it next to your cheek and you feel calm and gentle and you think babies. So what am I saying here, we all know baby yarn is great. Well here it is, wait for it…

Baby yarn should be used for us adults too!!

Yes! I mean it. What stops us from using this incredible yarn for some little something for ourselves? Oh I am not suggesting you use it to knit an ensemble. We know that it would take dozens of balls of yarn to make an adult outfit. But it would not take too much to make a scarf, can you imagine that up against your neck and face on a cold wintry day? I can.

So I had to try it. A few posts ago, I told you about that phenomenal deal I got on some fabulous baby yarn on my day trip. It was fantastic! But I didn’t really have a plan for the yarn. I’m sure you have done that yourselves. You see a beautiful color, or wonderful texture and you impulse buy it or the contingency plan that you will, of course, have an opportunity to use it eventually.

So I decided to use it for me. I made one of those little neck kerchiefs that really hug your face, one tail of the scarf slides into a loop on the other end and it snugs up to your chin. I love it. And it is so SOFT!

What can I say? It was brilliant. I had so much fun. Hey I like knitting for me too. I sure you do too. Try some baby yarn next time.

Try this pattern, it is so elegant and beautiful. And when you use baby yarn it is to die for. So nice because you can make it any size you like. Based on how much yarn you have and how much energy you want to expend.

The pattern is in multiples of 10, so just cast on how ever many you want for the width of your choice. Use any size needle you want, realizing that a larger needle is going to take more yarn. Enjoy.

The Joy of Collecting Baby Knitting Patterns and Yarns

Baby Knitting Patterns Help You Enjoy Your Craft

As we have talked about several times, knitting is a wonderful hobby, and baby knitting patterns is especially wonderful because of the less time and expense involved in choosing, and completing a project. Sometimes you can have a project started and you happen to find a beautiful must-have yarn. What do you do? Buy it of course.

You do know that you can never have enough yarn. I have three trunks full of yarn, baby yarn, and yarns suitable for older people projects. What are the advantages of this? Well I’m glad you asked.

If you have yarn readily available, there is never such a thing as boredom or being unprepared ever again. If it is a rainy cold day, I can spend hours going through my yarns and choosing the one that I will start a new project with. And if I get word that someone is having a new baby, I am instantly ready to get their gift ready for them.

So you can afford to increase your stock without guilt. And always be ready.

There are many places to find good bargains on yarn and patterns. There are the regular brick and mortar stores that you can shop, especially this time of year, you can find fantastic bargains. But if you can go online, there is no end to what you can find. Any store that is in a mall that you might drive to, you can shop at online. And you can find coupons online to make it even more affordable. You can even find tons of free patterns on and off line.

A Baby Knitting Pattern is a Soothing and Inexpensive Hobby

 

I found this wonderful article that comments on how knitting is soothing. And with the expense of nearly everything in this world, cheap as well! I find that baby knitting patterns are the best choice as I usually have many projects going at the same time. Baby knitting patterns are quick enough that you can have that near instant gratification of completing a project.

I will see a yarn and just have to have it. So because the project total cost is so reasonable, I never have to have any guilt. And as we said the projects are small so having many baby knitting patterns going at once is excellent.

There are literally so many baby knitting patterns that you would never come to the end of your choices, sweaters, booties, hats, mittens, blankets, it is endless. I know I like to have the opportunity to do a whole outfit for the baby, so I will have several going at once.

And with the choices of yarn types, baby knitting patterns would never become dull or boring for you. There would always be a new surprise. They have so many soft and fuzzy and utterly charming choices that it seems like a gift to yourself every time you pick up your needles. And the colors! Not just pink and blue, much more for your imagination to run wild with.

Cable Knitting Without a Cable Needle- WOW! (Video)

How many times have you wanted to knit some cute baby pattern but it required you to make cables. I am not sure why, but we are afraid of cables.

Maybe it is because we have to use THREE needles. Yes. two knitting needles and a cable needle. And sometimes you can’t find the cable needle that is the same size of the needles you are doing the main knitting on. So you just sort of fake it and make do with the size you have.

Well I am thrilled to share with you a fantastic find. Cabling without a cable needle. The following very short video explains how it is done. And the amazing thing you could adapt this to any baby knitting pattern, Use it as a trim or a part of the main body. Explore the possibilities. This makes an easy knitting pattern out of something more complicated. It is really cool!

I hope you become as excited about this as I am. Go knit something!

Double Pointed Needles for Knitting in the Round And Free Baby Sock Pattern

I love knitting on double pointed needles. Maybe because I love knitting socks. But Knitting in the round just works for me. Baby Booties or little baby hats are very fun to make. DPN knitting is not complicated. There is just one rule that must be obeyed when DPN knitting, You must not allow your thread to get twisted. When you obey this rule the rest is easy.

double pointed needlesAnd Like all our previous conversations knitting for babies is very rewarding in many different ways, but mainly because it is easy to take along and it is quickly finished. You have to agree it is so empowering to actually finish a project. Most knitters have a half dozen projects started and have a little knitter’s guilt for not finishing then before starting another “must do” project.

But with knitting for baby, you can luxuriate in the pleasure of finishing a project. And remember my motto, Have knitted baby gifts completed and waiting for the next baby. You know how they just keep coming along, and when they do, You’re ready! It is such a win-win proposition. I love knitting for babies.

So here is some help if you are a little rusty on double pointed needle knitting.

Baby Booties Free Knitting Pattern

 

Very Adorable Baby Booties Free Knitting Pattern

I have been looking everywhere for a sweet baby bootie pattern. I wanted it to be a little lacy but well constructed. I didn’t want it to fall off the baby’s foot with every movement.

I don’t know about you but I think this is a tall order. I have knit dozens of baby booties and although they are cute they are just not functional.

What got me thinking about this, was a friend that had the cutest baby booties knit for her by someone else and she lost one of them in the first week. She was sick about it. She said the bootie didn’t really fit the baby but was so cute and she didn’t want to offend her friend that knit it.

I can understand that but why not knit something that will stay put. Well of all places, I found this pattern on the BBC. You’ve got to admit this is one well constructed pattern.

I think they are adorable. Just click the image and go over to the BBC and check out the free pattern. It is not complicated at all. The key here is the right size needles. The pattern suggests 3.5mm needles. Remember this is a British site, so look at your needle size carefully. A size 2 or 3 American would work great.

Also I found this video of someone helping a beginning knitter know how to work the pattern. It is really very helpful and easy to follow. And you can pause and reverse to be sure you get all your questions answered.

The pattern is located on the video but it is a long url. So here it is. I loved these, I hope you do to and have fun! I know it joined my Baby bootie knitting favorite list.

Don’t Be Intimidated, Just Use Easy Knitting Patterns

Nothing Difficult About Easy Knitting Patterns

Maybe all this talk of baby knitting patterns and getting all excited about knitting for that new little loved one has intimidated some of you. Well don’t be, easy knitting patterns will be your solution.

You may not want to get too involved in a complicated knitting pattern at this stage of the game. But you also don’t want to be left out in the cold. Everyone else is knitting all around you, why not you too?

The trick to this is to start out with very easy knitting patterns. Usually a baby blanket will do very nicely. And get this, you can make an entire blanket with one single stitch. If you can learn to “cast on” which means get the yarn on the needles ready to start, then you can make a baby knitted blanket. The first stitch every knitter learns is the “knit” stitch.

An Explanation of the Knit Stitch – Read This A Few Times

Hold the needles in your two hands, hold the needle with the cast on stitches in your left hand and the empty needle in your right, hold the dangling yarn from your ball of yarn  also loosely in your right hand. Next slip the tip of the right needle into the back of the first stitch on the left needle, take your right hand with the yarn and wrap it around the tip of the needle now in the back of the stitch. Now gently pull the wrapped yarn through the stitch and let it slide onto the right needle and let the stitch that was on the left needle now slide off the needle.

Read that a few times. It is not complicated. The idea is that you are working the stitches off one needle onto the other needle and then you turn the project over, so that the stitches being knitted are always on the left needle. You work left needle to right needle.

And when you do one row after another of knit stitches it is called the garter stitch. And it is beautiful. Very squishy and when you use really soft wonderful baby yarns it is superior, and makes the most wonderful easy knitting pattern.

So don’t let anything stand in your way of making your first baby knitting pattern. Just start with an easy knitting pattern. You will love it!
