Any spare baby knitting patterns?

Have recently taken up knitting again for a new grandchild due in September. Have dug out some tried and tested patterns and so far made 3 little cardies and a blanket. Luckily DDIL loves hand-knitted items! Was wondering if any lovely GNetters might have any patterns lurking in a cupboard that they will not be using again and would be willing to part with. Would be happy to pay postage or return if required. Nothing too complicated, though have just learnt how to make bobbles from a YouTube video never having had the need to before! Thank in advance.

I can't knit, so would never be able to knit a baby!smile

I have knit a fairy doll, so a baby should be quite simple in comparison phoenix.

However, to be serious - here are a couple, but if you want to knit toys as well, these are cute:

Hi Granfromafar, I've made the cardi on the link below several times with great success. It's all-in-one which is a bonus:

Meant to add, it's a bit fiddly (but not difficult) until you get to the body. But just arm yourself with stitch markers and be sure to count. I find that once a pattern sort of reveals itself, it's pretty easy to follow.

This is another favourite when I've knitted it, because the batwing sleeves make it easy for getting little arms into:

Dead easy and so versatile, I've also knitted it in variegated wool.

Thanks for all the links, ladies. I like the sound of the all-in-one pattern as the sewing up is my least favourite part of making a garment.
