New Beginnings


New Beginnings is a collaboration with Lynn and Allison who are part of team DBD.  The girls felt that a mix of patterns for newborns and preemies was something that would be welcomed by customers.  Their idea, my design!!  The pack contains 3 pretty and practical designs with 3 different necklines – round neck, v neck and a collar and perfect for a boy or girl.  They also come with a dinky little matching hat.  This set is perfect as a starter pack for a newborn and an amazing gift.  They are so cute and the patterns are beautiful.  Note – set does not include pants instructions.

Wool & yarn recommendation…

I often get asked which wool I use and who my yarn supplier is!  For this knit I have used Stylecraft Special DK which I selected for its softness, it is very gentle on a baby’s skin.  There are over 88 different shades available through LoveCrafts, who are my preferred yarn and wool supplier.  (Spend over £25 to get free P&P and sign up their newsletter for 15% off your first order!)… I would also recommend Paintbox DK for this pattern.

    Got this pattern and knitted all three outfits for baby due in October. Such a joy to knit each and every one. Patterns were easy to understand.

    I have done all 3 of these. I did them for a premature baby unit and they were so pleased with them. Donnas patterns really easy to follow. Think all by old patterns will be going to the charity shop. Love love love the patterns
