In order to dress your baby fashionably and beautifully, you can run around all the shops in search of the right thing, and even spend an impressive amount of money. Or you can do otherwise - pick up a hook and a skein of yarn and create something unusual with your own hands. Hand-made knitted items will be especially loved by a child, as they carry a piece of your care and love.
In order to crochet children's things, you do not need to have a lot of experience, since there are a fairly large number of schemes and descriptions of simple products that even a beginner can handle. Finding them on the Internet is quite simple.
As for the models of children's clothing, it is better to start with the simplest ones, such as a sleeveless jacket or a hat, and then move on to more complex models. The advantage of crocheting is that you can knit patterns that do not require stitching, which is very good for toddlers.
The knitting process is impossible without yarn, and it is especially important for children to use natural threads. For a light blouse, cotton threads are perfect, and warmer things are best knitted from yarn made from sheep wool. But in the latter case, you must first make sure that the child is not allergic to wool.
Having mastered crocheting, you can create not only openwork summer models, but also warm clothes. It all depends on the structure of the yarn and the size of the hook, which will be used for knitting.
Another important point is the size of the clothes for the child. Children grow up very quickly, so it is better to knit things a little for growth - then they will serve the child longer.
When thinking about accessories for crocheted children's things, first of all, you should think about safety issues. For example, when choosing between buttons and ties in baby clothes, it is better to stop at ties with pompoms. Since the child can tear off the buttons and try to put them in his mouth.
