I came across these hand-knit baby bloomers on Instagram recently and had to knit them because they are too sweet! They are from a wonderful, easy-to-follow pattern purchased at studio Misha & Puff. I knit two sizes so far and they required about the same amount of yarn as an adult hat. The pattern calls for Madelinetosh Vintage (super wash) yarn or something similar. I’m looking forward to knitting their “popcorn bonnet” next.
Size 6-12 months in Madelinetosh Vintage “Modern Fair Isle” color way -a favorite!
I recently purchased this great skein of super-wash Hand Painted Merino Wool from Madelintosh (It’s Tosh Vintage) at the Knitting Tree in Madison. I didn’t have initial project plans so I kept it in a drawer for a few weeks. After I saw someone else post a picture of “Oh Baby! Baby Booties” (pattern available on revelry or ETSY) I knew that I wanted to knit them with this yarn! With the leftover knit I decided to make a baby hat with my own simple seed stitch pattern (knitting pattern coming soon!).
I have received many requests for baby items meant as gifts but I am never ready. Sizing is the main issue that has made me timid towards knitting children’s items. I have fears that items will be too large or too small. When I post baby items on my social media INSTAGRAM
I get a lot of interest. My intention is to experiment more with tiny knits.
