Just as Spring arrived and I was wishing I had some babies to knit for, a couple of my friends have announced that they’re expecting new family members later this year, yay! Wee Cria is one of my favourites, and perfect for when you don’t know if you’re knitting for a girl or a boy, since the short puff sleeves are optional. And so for today I had a look at some adorable wee Cria projects with lovely little details that would make a gift extra-special.
The contrast pockets and edgings on this version by Lolotte keep catching my eye on the gallery page for wee Cria, it’s so effective!
Using different colours or types of buttons is a great idea on any sweater, and totally perfect on Turquoise’s wee Cria.
More lovely little contrasting pockets on Mina’s little cardigan, and I love the button and ribbon detail on one side.
This version by Robebe is a great use of yarn – she used a variegated laceweight yarn held double, which creates a beautiful, subtle effect.
Embroidery is such a great detail to add to kids projects! pSTATqueen added some little flowers to her wee Cria, and I love it!
