The new mom might ask whether or not it is best or even necessary to knit her baby's clothes and the answer would have to be negative. With modern machines and cheap imported baby clothing, it's not necessary to knit at all.

But take it from millions of knitting fans that the thought of a life without yarn, knit and purl stitches makes them anxious. To experienced knitters, the soothing click of the needles brings peace into a busy day.

Many of these free baby knit patterns are far beyond what is generally considered to be vintage. Most of the patterns are antique or we might just call them just plain old. Some were passed forward in my family with sketchy instructions that I've attempted to complete as I tested them. The members of my knitting circle and I are in the process of testing or have tested most of the free baby knitting patterns listed, but we are busy parents with active babies and toddlers just like you and we are not beyond skipping a stitch. If you find this is the case, please bear in mind that these are FREE BABY KNITTING PATTERNS and we are offering them as such. If you have problems and worked to resolve them, please forward the adjustments, modifications to us to help the next knitter's baby bunting, bib or hat come out right.
