Baby Shower Countdown

How much time do you have to knit before the shower?

Baby Shower Countdown is a collection of baby knits, suitable for gift-giving, arranged by the amount of time you have to knit before the baby shower.

Whether you’re a beginner or advanced knitter, you’ll find that these patterns are knitter-friendly and fun to make. Additionally, each pattern includes links to free instructional videos to guide you through the trickier parts. The only skills required for this collection are casting-on, knitting, purling, and binding-off.

Each pattern is designed using affordable, machine-washable yarns. Since baby knits require so little yardage, it’s likely that you already have enough yarn in your stash to knit many of the patterns.

These 10 patterns + links to 39 instructional videos are available three ways:

PDF collection (suitable for printing), $12.00 US

  1. Hi Staci,

    I downloaded your pattern for the toddler tunic. I am knitting it right now but it seems really big. How can I adjust the knitting pattern to make it smaller? Can I start off with fewer stitches?

    Thanks so much!

  2. I love your idea of the Baby Shower Countdown. I wish I new someone that’s pregnant so I can indulge myself. I first learned how to knit by my mother-in-law when I was pregnant with my 1st child…he just turned 24. I can always knit some of your baby patterns and donate them! Thanks for your wonderful patterns and videos. I have learned so much from your website. I also taught myself your method of knitting…flicking. It took me a few months, but now I can’t imagine “throwing” the yarn like I used to.

  3. It is good if you place it in refrigerator for keeping it wet and cool for long time.
    Constantly, almost every charity including those focused on children is looking for volunteers.

    While I was there we got chatting and I mentioned I
    was looking for a job.
