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!
