Animal knits for babies and toddlers
Everyone loves babies, and everyone loves Fiona Goble’s wonderful knitted animal designs, so what could be more loveable than this collection of animal knits for babies up to three years old? For new babies, knit a puppy swaddling blanket, a bluebird bib, or “sleeping sheep” mitts. As your baby grows, they’ll look adorable in the tiger trousers and hat, the koala booties, or a bright-green frog hat and matching onesie. And as they start to crawl and explore the world, the bumblebee hat and shorts or the rabbit booties will add to their fun. For those just finding their feet, make a rabbit sweater, or a zebra cardigan, while older toddlers will love the chick socks and the chunky bear snood. For the nursery itself, the birds mobile, whale cushion, and polar bear rug will add character and warmth to your baby’s room, while the monkey rattle, and penguin and anteater toys will become treasured playthings. All the animals have terrific personality and charm, and will be loved by children and their parents alike. With simple stitches, full instructions for making up, and clear photographs to illustrate the details that give each animal its character, you will be able to knit something wonderful for the nursery in no time.
