Heirloom Baby Patterns Lovingly designed to celebrate all the magical moments of baby and childhood, KELBOURNE WOOLENS: BABY COLLECTION ties practicality and preciousness into one tidy little package. Whether you’re looking for delicate and dainty or rumble-tumble and rowdy, this collection has the perfect project to clothe your sweet wee one‌whatever adventures your life may now bring. As mothers ourselves, we understand the importance of knitting garments that are easy for baby to wear and easy for mom - or dad - to attire. The soft, warm, natural fibers of The Fibre Company yarns are the perfect companion for these keepsakes. Dressing your baby for the special moments you will share is a bonding experience to be cherished, and should be apparent even in the smallest of details. As knitters first and foremost, the first iterations of these patterns were knit by us and field tested by our own children, then handed down to friends and family over the years. The designs stemmed from a desire to knit thoughtful patterns with commonsense construction that are a delight to knit - every stitch, every detail worked with love and care.

We are so pleased to gather them together and share them with you.
