Hiya, mums all inspired by my expected bundle of joy - however, we are having real trouble finding nice modern knitting patterns for kids - the only ones mum seems to be able to find are back from pre 1960! [:0]

Anyone got any good patterns that they would share, or know of somewhere that has nice knitware patterns? :)

Another option is to go to the public library. They don't have individual patterns, but they have some great books. Very modern, often from overseas. I have just knitted my 4 year old son a funky hoodie from a book I borrowed from the library here in Htown.

Thanks Celtic Kiwi - great site, that I hadnt managed to find myself on the net (go figure?)

Ardnas - valid point, I hadnt even thought about the library ... [:I]

Hopefully this will keep mums fingers busy busy busy. There is actually some very nice knitware out there that I didnt know about! [^]

Many years ago (probably almost 30!!!!) I bought a set of magazines called Stitch by Stitch... just recently I was looking through again for sewing patterns.. (they may be ancient but some things never change...) and had to admit some of the knitting patterns were actually quite groovy... get rid of the nasty 70's colour schemes and I might even knit some... guess you have to look at the pictures and use a bit of creative licence...

Was arranging bookmarks and found this. I remember my husband looked it up for me AGES ago. I have not actually looked at the site, so can not vouch for its usefulness.

Forgot to tell you the name of the author to look out for when looking for patterns for babies and kids. Her name is Debbie Bliss and her patterns are very easy to follow.

Some of her titles are:

The baby knits book : the ultimate collection of knitwear designs for 0-3 year olds

Baby knits for beginners

Baby style : irresistible knitwear designs and home accessories for 0-3 year olds


Classic knits for kids : 30 traditional Aran and Guernsey designs for 0-6 years

Easy knits : over 25 simple designs for babies, children, and adults

Debbie Bliss nursery knits

I wont go on. This woman has written squillions of knitting books; so you should be able to find something at a bookshop. If not, the library would definitely have something of hers, being as prolific as she is.:D
