Simple chic knitting made easy

By emy Friday, February 05, 2010
When it comes to baby items, many mothers-to-be knitting newbies tend to zoom into intricately shaped garments.

However, there's a catch:

Pregnant moms tend to be more forgetful and the last thing you want to do is to create unnecessary stress for them.

If you are in a similar position and considering if you should learn knitting, here's my suggestion:

Do learn to manage your expectations -- opt for simple stitching and basic garment shapes.


A REAL-LIFE EXAMPLE


When Liyanah was pregnant, she was overjoyed and wanted to knit a little gift to welcome the little one's arrival to this world. Here's a baby top she knitted.

As you can see, it's a damn stunning looker piece. Totally hand knitted from scratch.

The construction is all based on squares and rectangles -- no calculations, intense shaping tracking or whatsoever. Knitting becomes a breeze for her as she knits up fairly quickly.

Straight forward knitting is what she needed during her pregnancy.

The fact that we used a solid and a variegated strand in alternating stripe pattern makes the entire pullover sweater makes it very eye catching. And the color variegation gives a perception of pattern complexity.

I am just thankful for the gals for being open-minded and experimental when it comes to color combining. Most would baulk at the thought of using these colors -- more so, for a baby.

Simple compositions really do not have to look boring.
I hope you'll agree! Sharing is sexy
