Buga Baby Bunting!

Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

I have been given the green light to start previewing the new Spud & Chloë patterns for the upcoming season. I will be previewing the patterns and more of the new yarn colors over the next couple of weeks. I am so excited about all of it and I hope you will be, too. The new patterns and yarn colors will all be available at your local yarn shops and online yarn shops in mid-June. That is coming up quick.

I thought I would start today with one of my new patterns for the upcoming collection. It is called the Buga Baby Bunting and is knit up in the ever-scrumptious Outer in the Cornsilk colorway. It is a little snuggle sack for a new baby! The ears on the hood only add to the sweetness.

I love the photo for the pattern. That tiny pink foot peeking out is the best! Delicious.

I took some quick photos of the snuggle sack before I sent it off to the Spud & Chloë headquarters. It is such a cute and fast knit in the super bulky weight yarn. I used US size 15 needles at 2 stitches per inch. Speedy. I left the bottom open for ease when buckling the baby in a car seat.

The body is knit in one piece and set aside. Then the hood is knit and grafted to the body. The ribbed edging is picked up after.

To keep things simple I added an easy bobble and loop for a closure. You could easily add a securely attached button here instead if you’d like. It’s up to you.

The Outer is a squishy treat to knit with. It makes me want to dive in every time. Love it!!

The Collector wanted to keep the bunting for her baby but it had to go. Her baby doll is a true newborn size. The bunting fits a newborn baby with lots of wiggle room and will fit up to about a 3 month old baby. It is a swaddle sack and babies older than that may find it a bit of a squeeze.

What a great go-to gift for the new baby in your life! In a few short hours you can whip up the Buga Baby Bunting and have the perfect hand-knit gift.

There is lots of inspiration to come through the new colors and patterns.

I’ll be back soon with more!

    That is way too adorable. Can’t wait to see the pattern–my friend is having a baby in December, and this would make a perfect gift for a winter baby.

    I’ll be watching for this one – what a perfect (and quick!) baby gift.

    You’re kidding! You mean that first picture is not a real baby! You could have fooled me, it so lifelike! Love the bunting bag by the way. In French we call that a ‘nid d’ange’ and it means an angel’s nest. I always loved to put my babies in an angel’s nest.

    Love it! Unfortunately it wouldn’t work in the car seat since baby’s arms have to go through the straps. That’s ok, though.

    Love! Adorable!

    This is fantastic! I really could have used one of these four months ago when my youngest was born. Too adorable.

    I have been looking for a baby doll that is lifesize so I can try baby knits on it. Would your daughter’s doll work for that? What kind of baby doll is it?

    Love this pattern but Whoops! The pattern says to cast on 34 and work in k2p2 ribbing; 34 is not divisible by 4! You have to start with 36 to alternate the k and p.

    Just sayin,

  31. May 27, 2010 at 6:39 pm sanderson says:

    The pattern photo is most definitely a real baby. I love nid d’ange or angel’s nest. Thanks for sharing.

  32. May 27, 2010 at 6:40 pm sanderson says:

    It could be opened up so the baby’s arms could stick out.

  33. May 27, 2010 at 6:50 pm paws says:

    Ah, from the top? I get it.

  34. May 28, 2010 at 1:00 pm sanderson says:

    Her doll is from Collectiblestoday.com and it is very life-like in looks and size.

  35. May 28, 2010 at 6:38 pm sanderson says:

  36. May 28, 2010 at 7:39 pm woolyknitsnbits says:

    Phew! I can still tell a baby and doll apart! (sigh of relief!)

  37. June 3, 2010 at 6:22 am sanderson says:
