Baby Knits!

I recently found out that a pregnant family member is having a baby boy, soon. I was wondering if any of you have any free baby knitting patterns that you love, on the internet. I am trying to find some things to knit for the upcoming baby. Any cool patterns to share?

I do have a basic baby sock pattern already. I am looking more for hats and maybe sweaters. A blanket too. Although, I may use the baby blanket pattern from the first Stitch n' Bitch book. I have not decided.

I do know that I really need to get busy on the baby knitting. EEEEK! I rarely knit baby items. So, this is sort of unchartered territory for me. My daughters are aged 15 and 10 and 1/2. LOL!

Thanks in advance for your help...

baby friendly mittens...which means they have no thumb...sort of like a tiny tube sock.

When I was knitting for my nephew, I went and checked out Debbie Bliss' Baby Knits book from the local library. ....so that made it free.

The Yarn Harlot also has some pointers on freestyle knitting for babies in Knitting Rules!

Someone made me the Baby Yoda Sweater for my new baby. It's adorable. There's a link to it from the Baby Yoda felted hat (which I think is on the other PRK blog)

Just a quick late comment. I did make the blanket from the first s'nb book three times last year, it was a fun quick knit. And I have seen it used by everyone that I gave it to - so I highly recommend it!
