Knitting & crochet patterns for baby clothes - sticky

Post by JJJ » Sun Jun 17, 2007 11:08 pm

Since people looking for knitting patterns usually come here instead of the patterns section, how about we post links to our favourite free online patterns sites here and this thread be stickied?

If you are looking specifically for longies or soakers please see the first post in the FAQ sticky or the sticky in the Patterns Section which is here

Some great free sites are:

Knitting Pattern Central

Drops Design

Magknits

Ok I'm in love with the Garnstudio patterns... aparently translated from Norwegian so double check the instructions make sense before starting.

Love the vintage vest! Wondering whether anyone has knitted it or do you know whether it would be a NB or bigger size? (I'm wanting to do a singlet in 3-6-month size).

The chest measurement around underarm is about 41cm and length from top of shoulder approx 27cm - looks like NB to me, but then I've forgotten how little they are! DD's NB things are buried in the shed and it would take me about a year to get them out :roll:

I knitted it, if you're on Ravelry, here's the link - http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Khai/sirdar-vest

It's definitely NB. My boy was 8lb5oz and here's a photo of him wearing it at a couple of weeks old at 9lbs, not a lot of room left in it! I think 5kg would be the max weight roughly speaking. I actually made the arms and length longer in hopes it would last longer, but the chest measurement hasn't allowed for that.

It's a pretty simple pattern, in theory it wouldn't be too hard to add a few extra pattern repeats and increases to make it the next size up.

Thanks for that, Khai. The vest looks gorgeous (and so does your little boy!). I would love to be able to adapt the pattern but think I need a bit more knitting under my belt before I try. Do you know whether using 4ply instead of 3ply would make it a lot bigger?

No, it wouldn't - I used 4ply (and the specified size needles) :wink:

Someone experienced in modifying patterns may be able to help, 8ply and 4mm needles would make it bigger, but I'm not sure by how much as I've never tried it before.
