Funny Babies In Vintage Knitting Patterns (Pattern Links Included)

These little ones don’t look convinced by their gorgeous knits!

For the benefit of our younger audience, there was a time – not actually that long ago, thank you very much – when photographs were taken on film. That meant that unlike today where you can take an almost unlimited number of snaps, you were limited to a small number of shots. We’re assuming that’s the reason for these precious pictures where the adorable little models weren’t necessarily in the mood.

Sometimes you can’t tell what babies are thinking… and sometimes you can!

This is one for the caption competitions! They really want to be somewhere else, don’t they? Nevermind! The lace details on this matinee coat design make it a winner in our eyes. Buy a copy of this vintage pattern on

Is that fear or confusion?

This is just one of the hundreds of period designs from the Vintage Knitting Lady and dates back to the 1940s. The chevron eyelet pattern is easy to work and comes on this dress or a matching jacket. Buy the pattern from

This is one distinctly unimpressed little lady

Well, sorry poppet, we have to disagree. We love this lacy number with sweet pearly buttons. Buy the pdf knitting pattern from Icky the Cat

“I have to wear what?!”

Despite her shocked expression, we think this dress is really cute and wouldn’t look out of place in a modern mademoiselle’s wardrobe. You can buy this digital collection of 1950s baby patterns at

This little chap looks like he’s in need of a cuddle and a nap!

Bless him! We love his knitted ensemble though. It’s just one of 13 patterns from the 1950s that are available in this digital pattern collection from Etsy.

On the other hand, these two were clearly having a whale of a time!

What a pair of mischief makers - you can’t help but wonder what they were like when they grew up! While we can’t answer that, we can tell you that you can buy the pattern for their cute lacy cardigans on Etsy.
