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.

After the Rain by Heidi Kirrmaier

After the Rain by Heidi Kirrmaier

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.

VIVID by Tin Can Knits

Vivid by Tin Can Knits

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.

Odyis Sweater by Linda Marveng

Cables are timeless – this classic jumper is perfect for cable lovers, and the scooped shaped hemline is gorgeously flattering for all! Knit in Rowan Tweed (as pictured), or your favourite DK yarn.

Evie Cardi by Susie Sparkles

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 yarn for the warmer months.

Four Bunnies Blanket by Suzanne Strachan

Four Bunnies Blanket by Suzanne Strachan

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.

Mermaid Tail Snuggle Blanket by Caroline Brooke

Mermaid Tail Snuggle Blanket by Caroline Brooke

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!)

If you’ve made any of these wonderful patterns, please share your pictures with us in the Community!
