A free modern baby knitting pattern, knit from the top down.
Designed by Kelly van Niekerk of PEKAPEKA Design Studio.
100s & 1000s are highlights of a childhood growing up in New Zealand and Australia. The wee colourful balls are sprinkled all over sweet treats, and invoke excitement in kids.
This free pattern is written for 8ply/DK weight yarn, and to fit a newborn babe 3-4kg (7-9lb) in weight, with an approximate chest circumference of 37.5cm.
This pattern has you cast on at the neckline, and work flat utilising raglan increases and perform basic colourwork, until you reach the required chest size. From here the arm stitches are put on to waste yarn (or a stitch holder), and the body finished, working the garter stitch button band as you go. Once the body is completed, the sleeve stitches are returned to the needles and worked in the round to the required length.
The sleeves are a tapered fit.
The colourwork is CHARTED ONLY (however it is very simple, and intuitive for those not confident with charts)
• Knitting small circumferences in the round
• Long tail cast on
• Simple stranded colourwork
• Working top down raglan construction
