New Baby Chunky Yarn & Patterns

When my 2 eldest children were babies, some 20 odd years ago now (wow), it was really easy to find chunky baby patterns.  My kids lived in bright, sometimes to the point of gaudy, chunky cardigans and jumpers that I could throw over whatever they were wearing to add a little extra warmth.  For some reason though chunky baby knits fell out of fashion and in the 8 years I’ve owned a yarn shop I’ve really struggled to find decent chunky patterns for babies, that will knit to a standard tension.

Not any more …………..

Sirdar have answered the call and have at last released Hayfield baby Chunky

Blend: 70% Acrylic 30% Nylon
Ball weight: 100g
Yardage: 155metres approx/170yards approx
Needle size: 6.5mm
Tension: 14 stitches, 19 rows to 4inches / 10cm on 6.5mm needles

There are 8 good, basic shades and as you can see the patterns are all very cute and are for ages 6 months to 7 years.
Happy Knitting!
