Mermaid tail

Mermaid tail

Kim Kardashian's daughter was spotted wearing a silky mermaid tail last year, and it wasn't long before all manner of celebrities were replicating the look, from Miley Cyrus to Gwyneth Paltrow. Our knitted version by Karen Wiederhold uses a combination of knit and purl stitches to give the effect of scales – give it a whirl today with DK yarn!

Cute baby waistcoat

Cute baby waistcoat

Here at Let's Knit, we can't resist a good baby project, and we're sure most people would agree with us. A great choice for both boys and girls, this waistcoat is made using super-soft yarn designed specially with delicate skin in mind, so there will be no complaints from even the youngest recipient. Made predominantly using stocking stitch and simple p2tog and k2tog decreases, this is also the perfect project for beginners looking to craft a garment for the first time.

For people using a Mac or an iPad, remember you will need a zip file app to download the pattern. Check out iZip, a free program that you can download onto your device.

Pop these mini mitts by Ali Campbell into your bag for all those cold hand moments in everyday life. The first section is made in rows using the pretty crossed half treble stitch. The thumb hole is then created before working in rounds for the pink scalloped border.

Butterfly Bib

Butterfly Bib

Lynne Rowe’s butterfly bib is the perfect gift for expecting parents — just swap the pink for a blue if you’re making for a boy or opt for a white if you’re unsure. Worked in simple double crochet, it’s a great chance to practise your skills and create a durable textured finish that will survive the messiest of meals.
