They are on Joli House
The baby knits I normally make are cutesy ones, maybe a little cabling and I tend to stay away from the more traditional matinee styles but these are simply adorable. I don’t believe these would have worked anywhere near as well in say white or pale pink.
It’s weird they are traditional styles but non traditional colours and they look just stunning. I particularly like the brown one.
I now want, no NEED, to knit something similar and so need two things. A baby girl to knit for and a pattern. I thought the second one would be easy to find. I got my great nan’s knitting book off the shelf, which must be from the 1940s/50s, along with an old knitting book my father in law got me from a charity shop. And nothing similar at all. My great nan’s book was disappointing and amusing in equal measure. A popular item seemed to be a pilch! A what? A pilch! Anyone know? No, shame on you! Here is it…
Obviously every baby shouldn’t be without at least one! They could be the latest trend. Now where’s my knitting needles?
