It Might Be A Boy… I Need Help!

I just realised that I have never even tried to find a knitting or crochet pattern suitable for baby boys. Not that I have a personal preference for baby girls, but I never had to make any knitting stuff for boys. Now that I know that my best friend is pregnant, and the baby might be a boy, I am in trouble…

Wait… You don’t think it’s my baby, do you? Of course not…

Anyway, do you have any simple jacket pattern for baby boys? Or your favourite jacket pattern for baby boys?

I always love it when the yarn finishes in the end of the row…

Right… while looking for a pattern, I have a WIP to show off. Apparently the Gosyo pattern is not as difficult as I think it would be. It goes really quickly, I think I quite like the yarn too. What helps me a lot is this link…Β https://dancingbarefoot.wordpress.com/2011/07/26/shaping-notation-in-japanese-patterns/

Wish me luck…

  1. I’m sure if you search ravelry.com and look for the advanced search, click on boy and you will find a handsome sweater to knit that can look great on a boy(or a girl)…Babies do have a sneaky way of not consulting us about sex or arrival times though…

    I don’t think there’s really any difference between baby boy patterns and baby girl patterns, is there? just a question of what colour.

  3. Most sweater patterns look fine on both girls and boys. Just don’t make it pink and you should be all set. I personally think pink would be fine too, but most people feel that’s a girl’s color. Oh, and Good Luck! (but I don’t think you’ll need it, you’re sweaters have all been lovely).
