Anyone have any cute beginners baby pattern?
Hi everyone,

I'm just about to finish my very first project ever. A safe simple scarf. It's looking pretty good for only starting to knit almost 2 weeks ago. But now I found out my cousin is having a baby in 6 weeks and I would love to knit something special for her baby boy. Problem is I'm afraid! :( I need to find a pattern for something really cute but also really easy. Anyone have any suggestions? A hat, booties a baby blanket? I would really love to knit a baby blanket but think it maybe too big and complicated for a 2nd project.

Help! :thinking:

Ok, I'm back.

Great about the scarf Esmerelda!

Practice the purl stitch, and any of the "easy" baby patterns should be attainable. Most of the patterns at Bevs (the link I posted) are really easy.

How exciting! I love knitting for babies. I would suggest a hat first and then a pair of booties. I still havent done a baby blanket yet. And six weeks is pretty short notice. I would stress myself out if I was doing a blanket. Thats just me.

I've got a pattern for a baby hat that I just do from memory. I made it for my babies, I can type it up this weekend and post it here.

Oh, I would really love that hat pattern. I saw the link for baby patterns, everything looks so cute. I think I will attempt a hat and booties. A baby blanket would probably stress me out. Especially since my cousin is saying the baby is big and maybe induced a week or two earlier.

Thanks! :D

Esmerelda, look above to my post to Tamar about the fake rib baby hat, it would be incredibly easy! Just rows of stockinette and reverse stockinette, join the cast on edge to the bound off edge, gather up one end, and you're done!

This makes an absolutely beautiful blanket and is garter stitch. I used a baby lash and though it was costly, turned out just so gorgeous that I made a second one.

These knit up easily too!

I made a hat to go with these two, but can't find the pattern. I am including a picture. Don't be deceived. This blanket is knit on the diagonal, but when finished is square! The receiver of this gift thought I had bought the set at a fancy shop and was shocked when her husband told her I made it. Happy knitting!
