There’s something impossibly adorable about knitting teeny-tiny versions of grown-up things. Take a sock, for instance. Yours is not cute (sorry). But shrink it to baby size and BOOM – all the feels. Plus, while adult knits are often a mammoth undertaking, you can whip up a baby beanie in less time than it takes to watch Paddington.
Whether you have your pint-sized recipient already in mind or just twitchy-knit fingers keen for a quick make, we got you. Below is our pick of the free online patterns so you can find your ideal project.
