Who doesn't love knitting for babies? The patterns are adorable, the yarns are soft, and the knitting is done before you know it! And seeing your handwork worn by the wee one you made it for is nothing short of irresistible.

The magical part is knowing that when you knit for Baby, you are knitting for the future-even when this particular child has grown out of your gift, you know the item will be carefully saved for the next little one in the family, whether that be a year or a generation away. You're not just knitting for practicality or warmth; you're knitting to create a family heirloom.

Here, we've chosen nine designs for the babies in your life. Select a preemie hat for the littlest one, three baby sock patterns, a baby bootie pattern, a blanket full of stars, a lace cap, a tiny jacket, a classic cardigan, or a set of barnyard baby booties. From the simplest garter stitch pattern to cables and lace, you'll find something here for every skill level and every taste.

We hope that one of these designs will find its way into your family's life, helping to welcome a new little person into your arms and your hearts. May the future of these young ones be bright!

About Kathleen Cubley

Hello daily knitters! I'm the editor of Knitting Daily. I've been obsessed with knitting for about ten years now and my favorite projects are sweaters. I like the occasional smaller project, but there's nothing like yards of stockinette with a well-placed cable or a subtle stitch pattern here and there. I crochet a bit now and then—especially when I need to produce a baby blanket in time for the baby shower. I've been in publishing for 20 years and I'm finally exactly where I want to be: at the crossroads of knitting and communication. I live in Spokane, Washington and when I'm not knitting I enjoy gardening, snuggling with my dogs, swimming, reading, and playing in the snow in the winter. But, really, I'm pretty much always knitting!

  1. Kathleen,

    Thank you! A neighbor of mine was telling me about the lovely baby shower given for her daughter. I noted though, that she mentioned some items had to be returned to the store, as they were duplicate gifts. I thought about this when reading your article, and that how dear a hand made baby gift really is. It is always an “original” & treasured. Thanks for these, as they don’t necessarily take a lot of time if you need to make a gift quickly.

  2. I always make baby gifts by machine and by hand. They always seem to get the most “Ooo’s” and “Ahhh’s” … and tears. Thanks so much for this “gift” … and on my birthday! It means more than any other gift, but don’t tell my family that!

  3. Thank you for the great patterns I like to keep knitting them and then put them aside so I have a beautiful handmade gift ready when I need one! I also try and knit some mittens and scarves during the summer to use as little gifts during the fall and winter months.
