Man, I love knitting for kids. So quick. So satisfying. So cute.
All the patterns on this page either have options to knit for both kids and adults (twinning is winning in knitwear, after all) or are designed just with little people in mind. No matter the age of the little one you’re knitting for, there’ll be a Woolly Badger pattern; I design for kids from newborn right up to teen.
To find out when new kids’ patterns are published, sign up to my mailing list. I’ll even give you some lovely little discounts as a thank you.
Only Magical Girl in Town cardi
The Only Magical Girl in Town cardigan is a modern take on a classic girls’ cardigan – it’s got dainty looks, but its seamless and comfy construction makes it ideal for running, jumping, and climbing trees. Knitted in 4ply to sport weight yarn, it’s a great cross-season garment that adds a bit of warmth.
Jimmy Jab Jumper
Top down, seamless, and colourful, the Jimmy Jab Jumper is sized for kids from 2-12 years. And while it’s got the look of a fancy colourwork yoke, you’re only ever using one colour per row; making it much easier than it looks.
RSVP As Pending socks
Quick socks for little feet. The RSVP As Pending socks use DK yarn to knit up super fast, and with a lovely simple toe up construction they’re great fun to knit. With seven sizes from baby to XL adult, there’s a pair for all the family.
This little hat is designed to fit all the family – from newborn baby right up to large-headed adults. Using DK yarn, a super-simple colourwork pattern (there’s only one colour per row, so it’s way easier than it looks) and with two fit options, it’s a lovely quick knit.
I Smell Snow hat and Coffee With My Oxygen cowl
Have I got the perfect first Fair Isle project for you. This dinky little hat and matching cowl uses traditional Fair Isle motifs, arranged in a super-easy way. No long floats to worry about. Only two colours per row. Colourwork doesn’t get easier than this.
The cowl is available in child and adult size, with the hat sized for children, teens, and adults. (By child I mean aged roughly 4-10 years old, in case you’re wondering.)
