The Sweetest Knitted Baby Clothes Ever

Knitted baby clothes are a breeze to make thanks to their small size. They’re great practice for knitting adult-sized sweaters, too. If you make a mistake, ripping back a baby sweater is much less painful than ripping back larger adult sweaters. Those tiny knits also mean that you can make use of that scrap yarn!

These knitted baby clothes are perfect for baby shower gifts or just for giving a little one some extra coziness.

1. Bitey Bum Monster Leggings

This is a great project for using up scrap yarn from other baby knitting projects. Have fun with the monster faces, adding any kind of embroidery or embellishment you’d like to make these pants even more fun. (Check out the eyelashes on the purple and pink leggings pictured above for inspiration!)

3. Noah Baby Cardigan

I love the modern mismatched buttons that designer Buzybee added to this cardigan, but if you’re going for a more traditional look you could use matching buttons. Wooden buttons would look adorable on this, too! The simple garter stitch means this little cardi will fly off your needles.

4. Dungaree for 6-9 Months Baby

This pattern is designed for a baby who can sit up on his or her own. Fluffy mohair, like the fiber seen here, gives the overalls a lofty look, but you can go for other worsted-weight fibers if you want a more classic style.

These pants work for an extra layer of warmth or for what babies are best at: just lounging around. The stylish stripes are ideal for using up scraps, but we’re sure baby won’t complain if you choose a solid color instead.

I know how to knit but what disturbs me are the joints and the pieces. Teach me how to make arms, neck and leg joints.
