About Us

knitting pattern for a classic baby cardigan

Just a little bit about us here at DollieBabies Knits For Newborns

My name is Lynne and I founded DollieBabies Knits For Newborns back in 2011.

My mother taught me how to knit when I was just 8 years old. She was an avid knitter and she used to test big-brand knitting patterns before they were released. The items she made from them were then worn by models and photographed for the front cover of each pattern. My fascination for knitting started here.

Back in 2010, a friend wanted a baby cardigan for her premature baby but she couldn’t find one. She asked me to make one for her, but we struggled to find a pattern for the very tiny size she needed. I took a few measurements and made up the little cardigan as I went. As I had kept all the handwritten notes I had made whilst knitting it, I later typed them up into pattern form.

Little did I know at the time that this would be the start of things to come!

How it all started

Soon afterwards, I wanted to knit another outfit for one of my dolls, but once again, I couldn’t find a pattern for what I wanted. I sat down with a pencil and paper and drew and made notes of what I wanted. Suddenly I had a new design. This too got knitted up and then typed up into pattern form for future reference.

Once my son started primary school, I wanted something to challenge me, so I carried on designing knitting patterns. I was thoroughly enjoying it. It was then that I decided to step it up a gear and make my designs available to everyone.

I got myself a website and on the 19th of April 2011, DollieBabies Knits For Newborns went live.

So here we are, 13 years later and we have more than a handful of patterns that we started with.
