Podcast Episode 323: Baby Knits and Toys
Nilla the Unicorn

Knitting tiny things like stuffies and baby sweaters has always been a favorite way to fill our knitting queue. Lately the knitters here at Knit Picks have cast on for small, quick projects as we find ourselves with more opportunities to dive into our stashes at home. It’s the perfect time to reach for instant gratification knits.

First up, Hillary and Morgan share their recent experiences knitting for babies. Tiny sweaters, hats and the cutest baby socks are fun to whip up and gift right away or store for future babies. They share tips and tricks for knitting baby gear as well as some pattern recommendations!

Next, Stacey and Hannah do a deep dive into knitting toys. They both LOVE to make stuffies and have found things that they both look for in a good toy pattern. Learn about yarns and techniques we recommend for 3D toy knitting as well as their favorite patterns!

As always… happy knitting!

    Dear Dorothy if you live near wesley chapel fl. I would love to learn so many handcrafts that I have always wanted to. Unfortunate for me video and reading instructions are not as beneficial as watching with a hands on aproach

    I thought to give you all a new idea . . . There are a great many bald heads that would love soft, comfortable little hats to keep the cold AC off their heads causing headaches. Many people, male and female suffer from sinus problems and the cold air aggravates even causing headaches. Women could use unique little hats that complete thei outfits, decorative, but at the same time reduce their discomfort. There is always someone for each unusual design as well as regular indoor hots. They will buy more than one. I wear one 24/7. Unfortunately they always slip and slide around on my head. My 6’4” son nearing 60 has favored shaving his head so indoors with AC he wears an outdoor hat Indoors. Wouldn’t it be nice to wear an indoor hat. The design possibilities are infinite. Encouraging the many creative hand workers is great-the new, experienced, young, old, and anywhere in between. I have been trying to empty my stash by diligently working everyday. Afraid my daughter will throw everything out after I die. Sent a lot of stuff north to my 2-sons. Difficult to find takers although they know many people. Enjoy your ads and writings although no longer purchasing anything.
