Millamia’s signature block colour style is not just for grownups! This sweet collection brings bold colours and comfy cables for babies and little ones in four fun patterns designed for MillaMia’s cosy merino yarn.
A fabulous every day favourite. After the Rain is one of those jumpers you just can’t do without – and has such a following that knitters are making and remaking this pattern in different colours! Made here in King Cole Bamboo Cotton DK, it makes a wonderful spring knit – but there’s no reason you can’t make it in your favourite wool or acrylic DK blends too.
A fabulous project that you can knit on the go! This gorgeous blanket square pattern can be made in any weight yarn – simply adapt the number of squares you want for the size of blanket you desire. The sample above is knitted in 4ply, but it would make a wonderful bigger blanket worked up in an aran weight yarn.
It’s no surprise to us that the Evie Cardi was up there in your favourite patterns! Sized from preemie baby to age 6, it’s a pattern that you can re-make every time your little darling grows out of the last one you made – in something practical like the super soft and washable Sirdar Snuggly DK (pictured), right through to a DK wool or in cotton for the warmer months.
Super duper clever – this pattern creates sweet bunnies just using knit and purl stitches! An absolutely wonderful first project and knitted here in Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK – but this kind of blanket can be made up in the DK yarn of your choice.
There HAD to be a mermaid blanket in your favourites! This one is absolutely gorgeous, and knits up fast on big needles using three strands of yarn. It’s knitted in the round, so there are no seams to deal with – and the pattern includes 6 sizes: 2-3 years, 4-5yrs, 6-7yrs, 8-9yrs, 10-11yrs and pre-teen. (If you’re wondering, the fabulous Caroline Brooke has also written a pattern for an adult mermaid snuggle blanket here!)
