HEARTWARMER baby vest knitting pattern with cables

HEARTWARMER baby vest knitting pattern, ohlalana

HEARTWARMER baby vest knitting pattern: Newborn to 2 years

My HEARTWARMER baby vest is worked flat, from bottom up, in 2 separate pieces. It features a cabled panel both in the front and in the back. It has only 2 seams, one at each side. Each shoulder is closed by a button strap facilitating the process of putting on and taking of the vest 🙂

Why “Heartwarmer”? Well, here in Argentina we call (rather poetically, I think) “calienta corazones” (“heart warmers”) to this kind of little vest that keep the baby torso warm 😊

The pattern comes in 4 sizes:

  • 0 to 6 months
  • 6 to 12 months
  • 12 to 18 months
  • 2 years.

POKER KNITTING pattern, free poker pattern, ohlalana

In a previous post I showed you how to make some POKER COASTERS but forgot to include the pattern for the placemat in the photo. I was recently asked for it and, after some days of searching over 27 notebooks (I really need to start drafting pattern ideas in a digital way) I’m happy to report that I’ve found it! So now I can complete sharing with you my entire POKER KNITTING SET 🙂

FREE dishcloth knitting patterns – 4 patterns to make 10” cloths

A customer asked me recently to modify my Dishcloth Set 2 to make each square 10 inches by 10 inches. The original size of the patterns is 8.75” x 8.75” (the same as every pattern of my 52 Square Pickup, Alphabet and Numbers collections, as well as many others). Therefore, I decided to write a “FREE dischloth knitting patterns” post and share them with you!

You can find below the new row-by-row and charted instructions for all 4 dishcloths. PLEASE note that I didn’t knit them myself in this size: the details are just the result of my calculations 🙂

I hope you enjoy my FREE dischloth knitting patterns!

Baby Sweater Knitting Pattern for Beginners: The CHALTEN Sweater

Hello 🙂

It’s been a long time since I last posted a FREE baby clothing pattern, right? So here I am, after many testings, with the simplest baby sweater ever. Really. Read on if you don’t believe me.

My CHALTEN Baby Sweater knitting pattern is PERFECT for beginners. If you never knitted a sweater before, give it a try! All you need to know is how to cast on stitches, how to bind them off, and how to knit in garter stitch (yes, the more basic stitch: just k all sts, all the time). You can’t say no to the challenge!

ABBREVIATIONS

  • CO: cast on
  • RS: right side
  • WS: wrong side
  • st: stitch
  • k: knit
  • p: purl

INSTRUCTIONS

– CO 43 sts with US 7 (4.5 mm) needles.

I always cast on and bind off stitches with larger needles than I use for the main work. This prevent my cast on and bind off rows from being too tight.

– With US 6 (4 mm) needles, knit 4 rows.

Slip first stitch on every row as if you were to knit it, but without knitting it (except on the first row). It will form a neat and sturdy border.

– Continue working as follows:

4 garter sts, GIRAFFE knitting pattern over 35 sts, 4 garter sts​ (55 rows).

– Knit 4 rows.

– Bind off with US 7 (4.5 mm) needle. Cut yarn and weave in ends.
