1. Dog coat
Do you want to make your dog cuter and lovable? One easy way is by putting a coat on your favourite pet. You can knit something that resembles a tuxedo or even a business attire. This is cool idea especially if you’re allowed to bring your dog to your work or a special gathering.
Even beginners can create one by following a pattern. It’s fairly easy to make because it’s small and you can easily make corrections because of its small size. You can start with one design and move on to the next. Often there are different available sizes which can fit your dog perfectly once you finish knitting that handmade dog coat.
2. Baby beanies
Handcrafted beanies and other baby outfits are some of the most popular projects for both beginners and experienced hobbyists. That’s because you’ll realise instantly the cuteness added by your handmade craft. In addition, outfits made for babies are also fairly easy to knit.
Beginner packages almost always include patterns for baby beanies, sweaters, pajamas, socks and even boots. That’s because these don’t require much skill. The drawings and measurements are also easy to follow and interpret. Even beginners can finish one or two within a weekend.
3. Baby costumes
These are also popular because these are very fun to make. You can create a hat, beanie or hoodie with eyes, nose, ears and mouth. You can also create one which resembles your child’s favourite cartoon character or superhero.
Animal patterns and designs are also popular. Once worn by the adorable baby, it will be a very satisfying experience. You can start with designs that look similar with bears, dogs, cats and even alligators (available in child-friendly and fun designs).
4. Clothes for toys and dolls
