Are you looking for a baby knitting pattern book to use your Patons Big Baby Yarn?
This is one of my current favourites and I still have a hand full of them in stock.
Patons Book 5000: Big Baby 3 & 4 Ply
This is a great pattern book, it is one I have in my own pattern collection and I have used it frequently this year.
And Patons are not exaggerating when they make the claim that the pattern book contains a complete wardrobe of hand knits for your baby.
This pattern book includes patterns for jumpers and cardigans in several different styles, a christening set including a shawl, leggings, hats, bonnets, mittens and bootees.
It even has the pattern for a couple of teddy bears!
Most of the patterns in the book have sizes to fit from prem up to twenty-four months, and it includes a bonus 'Learn to Knit Guide' for those of you who are just starting out as a knitter.
The 5000 Big Baby pattern book is a compilation of the most frequently requested Patons styles, re-written in a broader size range to be knitted in the 4 ply Big Baby yarn.
Patons suggest that all of the patterns can be knitted in 3 ply Big Baby, but if you wanted the garment to be the size specified in the pattern you would have to adjust the needle sizes to get the tension right. If you have any questions about just how to do that, check out the page on how to knit a tension square.
If you choose not to adjust the needle size, the garment will be smaller that the measurements specified in the pattern. So, depending on which yarn you use (and which needle sizes) the garment size can vary from 30cm around the chest (prem size) to 64cm (toddler size).
Want to See Inside This Baby Knitting Pattern Book?
If you are anything like me, you are not going to want to buy a pattern book - cause let's face it, they can be expensive - unless you can have a look at the designs that are included in the book.
