It’s getting closer to Valentine’s Day!! If you are looking for patterns for your little ones, here is a sweet set that is sure to be just what you are looking for:
Design Story and Inspiration for the Valentine Baby Set
I love creating baby things, and when All Free Knitting put out a submission call for Valentine items, I knew I wanted to create a set for that publication.
Baby dresses are really one of my favorite things to make (even though I have all boys!) so I started with a simple silhouette to let the felt pockets be the star of the show.
The striped pants (or leggings, if you prefer!) were a challenge as I had never designed pants before. They fit my little guy perfectly! He and his best friend graciously modeled these for me.
About the Yarn
Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice is a wonderful, easy to care for acrylic yarn that has a nice feel to it. I chose it for this design because it’s available in so many colors and it really does wash and wear well.
I love this color combo together, too! It’s a lighter teal/sage green and an off-white. I love these two!
