Knitting for babies is awesome. Everything is adorably cute and takes so little time to make that you could basically create a full baby clothing collection in the time it would take you to knit an adult cabled jumper. Or maybe I'm just bad with cables. Anyway, I love knitting for tiny humans. And bonus point: there are a lot of free patterns out there! Here are a few of my favorites lately!
