Fair isle knitted baby hat

Knitted & crochet baby patterns

A few months ago I found out my best friend is having a baby! It’s not long until she’s due now so I’ve spent the last few weeks putting together a bag of baby gifts for the baby shower (which was last weekend). Her and her husband are quirky, creative people so I used bright colours instead of traditional pastels. Most of the gifts were handmade and here are some of the knitted and crochet baby patterns I used…

Shop bought baby gifts

I bought a couple of items too:

  1. Little Me Babies Bath Soak because it smelt amazing and contains natural ingredients like aloe vera and lavender
  2. Joules Baby Farm Bib because it was so soft and lovely I couldn’t resist!

I’m looking forward to making their little person lots of things over the next few years 🙂

  1. All I can say is a super big thank you for all the lovely things you made us! I think its defiantly going to be a very stylish and rather quirky baby!

  2. OH WOW, how lucky is your best friend!… I love knitting and Crochet, so relaxing… although I prefer to use my knitting machine as im not too good with just normal needles 🙂
