Knitting for kids in cotton

At this time of year, knitters are often looking for smaller projects or ones using cotton.

You can combine both by knitting kids clothes in cotton. And you end up with colourful, hardwearing garments – so everyone is a winner.

We’ve picked out a few patterns to inspire you
