Beautiful Projects – Little Birds, for kids

January 19, 2016

Little Birds from Twist Collective is one of Ysolda’s patterns that’s most often modified, with some amazing results. Knitters experiment with colour, style and fit and they’re all inspiring, but it’s the projects where the pattern has been used to create something for a child that I love the most. The birds are also the perfect little colourwork motif to incorporate into other patterns, or use as the basis for something completely new.

These three gorgeous knits were made by undone57. It’s amazing how a couple of little motifs can produce such different, but awesome garments. Her project pages have some great notes – top, bottom left and bottom right.

Say hello to sidecarJo’s smiley boy! Hopefully that smile has a lot to do with his awesome vest. It was knit some time ago, but she recently updated her project page to say that ‘it was worn a LOT, and has since been passed onto 3 more small people who have an eye for fashion.’

Another lovely vest, this time knit by annahatt. Anna’s project page has some very detailed notes on exactly how it was made in case you’d like to do the same, and she’s included information on gauge so it should be fairly easy to resize. Thanks Anna!
