It’s baby animal season!

Well, it’s 16 days to the official start of spring. And what does spring mean? Cute little baby things everywhere! Baby birds, baby squirrels, baby horsies – we’ve already spotted some adorable baby animals here at KnitPicks HQ!

These are our two Barnyard Buddies kits – Springtime Sweeties and On the Farm. Each kit contains the pattern for two sets of a diaper cover and bonnet in two characters – a Duckie and Bunny in Springtime Sweeties and a Cow and Piggy in On the Farm. They come in sizes 0-3 months, 3-6 mos., 6-12 mos. and 12-18 mos.

These little costumes are just the thing to get oohs and aahhs from your family and friends. Worked in Swish Worsted, they’re an easy-care addition to dress-up day. In fact, they’re really just the thing for those photos that you will eventually show to the little one’s future high school sweetheart. Just don’t tell them I said so!

If you wanted to use the diaper covers as soakers, you can easily pick up a few balls of Wool of the Andes with your kit. You would need 3 balls of Carnation for the Piggy, 3 of Daffodil for the Duckie, 3 of White for the Bunny, and 2 of White and 1 of Black for the Cow.

These are such fun, quick little outfits to make that you’ll want to make them for every little one in your life. (And you should! :))
