Trending in the Fiber World: Kids Edition

A couple of weeks ago, I did a post about some patterns that are hot in the fiber arts world. I thought it might be fun to do the same with some baby/kid patterns!

Probably the biggest and most exciting thing going on in the world of knitting for kids is the news that Alana Dakos and Hannah Fettig are planning on releasing kid-sized versions of several patterns from Coastal Knits! The patterns aren’t released yet, but word on the street is that they’ll be coming sometime in May! Both designers have posted some sneak peeks on their blogs:

Now that I’ve tempted you with patterns you can’t have yet, how about we look at some patterns that have been out for a while but continue to be wildly popular.

The Aviatrix Baby Hat is a great last-minute gift for a baby shower. It has gotten rave reviews from both knitters and Moms who have put the hat to use. Several of our customers have made this adorable hat and I think it would look especially fun in our bright colors of Knitted Wit DK or Baah! Sonoma. Pattern is available for free!

 The Milo Vest is another great pattern that is available in sizes newborn-6 years. The pattern provides several cable patterns to choose from and is a fun knit. It would look particularly charming in the new Be Sweet Bambino yarn we have at the shop! The Milo Vest pattern is available for purchase at Stash through the ravelry in-store pattern sales!

Knitted toys, especially those designed by Rebecca Danger are very popular. Her most recent pattern release, Basil the Boogie-Woogie Brontosaurus is no exception. You can choose any weight of yarn you’d like to make Basil and he’d be a great stash-buster project. The pattern can be purchased at Stash.

  1. I’m feeling a little dizzy from all that cuteness…
