Autumn is fast approaching, and that means that kids will be headed back to school in no time. While you start to think about classes and school supplies, knitters can contribute a unique and extra special touch to a child’s school wardrobe by knitting up a heartfelt gift. Creating a hat to keep his or her ears warm or a sweater for picture day is a great way to involve yourself in your child’s life. The flexibility of knitting also allows you to make something just for your little one. Try making a cardigan in her favorite color, or modifying one of these animal knitting patterns to his favorite creature.
Why not involve your child in the decision making process? He or she can pick out which pattern they’d like as a gift before you even cast on. This collection of patterns will have your child covered from head to toe. With a little bit of knitted love, your child will be the most stylish person at school.
