Leafy Shrugs

Julia knit this pattern earlier this year in a Budding Designers KAL on Rav and knew she wanted to have the Cottage License for it. She was going to put it off until the weather started warming up again, but recently someone enquired about her knitting it for their daughter's Christening - hey presto! Julia now has the CL for StitchyMama/Katherine Oxlade Knacks' Leafy Shrug which means she can knit this to sell.

These stunning pics are taken by a fab Wgtn photographer friend of mine - Rachael Brown

This is a beautiful lacey shrug, great for summer BBQs as the weather cools in the evenings as well as spring & autumn days when another warmer layer is necessary. It makes a special one of a kind gift, perfect for birthdays and Christenings.

It can be knit in a range of sizes: 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months, 18 months, 2T, 4T, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14

Providing the chest measurement for the child would ensure the right fit for the shrug

Please contact Julia if you would like to order or make an enquiry, or visit her blog

Kids Handwarmers

Introducing another pattern that I love, and that I'd love to knit for you!

A friend of mine, Samantha Goodin has just developed a cute little handwarmers pattern that I was lucky enough to test - and I loved it so much (and more to the point, Penny loves her pair of handwarmers so much too) that I'm now able to knit these handwarmers for sale

You'll have to excuse the variety of colours Penny is wearing, she loves to dress herself

These practical little handwarmers are great for kids - they can still use all their fingers and thumb to play and manipulate things while keeping their hands toasty warm. They're also great for thumb and finger suckers, it means that they can still access their thumb/fingers while sitting in the stroller while you're out for a walk or in their carseat.

Penny's steering the 'pirate ship' here

These fit from approximately 1-5 years.

Introducing .... Eden's Adam and Eden's Eve

The Coco Kids team are proud to announce that we are all now licensed to knit Eden's Adam and Eden's Eve, by designer tiKKi (Georgie Hallam). We all tested this wonderful pattern for Georgie and now are very happy to be able to knit these for sale.

This is a versatile top that can be knitted as a vest/singlet version (Adam) or the dress version (Eve) - above is the Adam in various colours and sizes. Here is an Eden knit in 100% cotton, perfect for summer, or with a long sleeved top and leggings underneath for cooler weather.

The size ranges from newborn up to size 10 and can be knit in cotton or wool, meaning it can be worn as a warm singlet underneath clothing or over the top of a long sleeved top for winter and on its own when the weather is warmer.

There are many variations and ways to personalise this garment, with different options for the bottom and with the addition of pockets if desired. It can be knitted in stripes, variegated yarns, or solid and semi solid colours meaning each finished item is truly a unique item of clothing.

To order an Eden's Adam or and Eden's Eve you can contact any of the Coco Kids team, Julia, Kate or Ali.
