It used to be such a traditional thing to do: knit something for the new member of the family. Now everything is so easily bought, and we no longer need to make our own clothes in most cases. Even so, there is still a huge reason to knit something for baby, and that's quality. You simply cannot beat the quality of a hand-made item, and it can be the most cherished of all the clothing and items you have when you newborn arrives. If you have a baby on the way or you know someone who does and you are dying to knit them something, here are 10 free knitting patterns for babies.
