"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

Why does it seem as though knitting for babies is a thing, and knitting for children, teens, and adults is common, but toddlers are just fully forgotten? Are we supposed to not knit for the little ankle-biters in our family? I don't know about you, but I have three toddlers in my extended family right now, and I hate the thought of not knitting for them until they're in elementary school. These free knitting patterns for 2 to 3 year olds are ones that I always keep bookmarked just in case a holiday or birthday is coming up... or (let's just be honest with ourselves) because I want to knit something cute.
While you could find easy children's knitting patterns (free ones!) pretty easily, it's never a guarantee that they're going to fit the youngest of little ones, and it may be nice to gift them something that they can grow into, but ultimately, it's nice to have something they can wear now rather than leave forgotten in the back of their closet. Here's a hot tip: mothers in baby showers love to receive an outfit or two for their kids when they reach toddlerhood, both because they're reminded of how sweet their little one will look growing up, and because they're only receiving baby stuff from everyone else! Check out some of the patterns below for ideas for your next gift.

Toddler Scarf Knitting Patterns
These free knitting patterns for 2 to 3 year olds are perfect to help the little one survive his first winter storm. Not only is he going to want to play outside in the snow no matter what the temperature (unfortunately for mom!), but he's probably going to have to traverse the outdoors with his parents for trips to the store and visiting family. It's a great idea for him to have a scarf or two on-hand.
Hats and scarves are great knits for kids because they're just so dang fast! Check out our collection of 36 Free Knitting Patterns for Children's Hats (and Scarves)
Knitted Hats for Toddlers
While hats are dramatically important to help protect baby's heads and keep them warm, toddlers could still use some help in that department. We really recommend these hats come with a fun twist, such as bright colors or cute little animal ears, so they'll be excited about wearing them.
Free Knitting Patterns for Toddlers: Cardigans
It's no surprise that toddlers are fussy. With all the running (and toddling!) around that they do all day, thermal regulation can be a bit of a nuisance. Something like a cardigan is great so you can quickly button and unbutton any extra layers your little one might need.

Toddler Knit Sweater Patterns
As knitters, we all know how much of a "must" that sweaters are. Free knitting patterns for 2 to 3 year olds often don't include pullovers, because cardigans are just so convenient. However, many toddlers are already learning how to dress and undress themselves, and can easily peel a sweater off if necessary. Plus, not having to wear an undershirt is an added bonus for mom... Less laundry!
Knit Toddler Accessories
There is just nothing cuter than a toddler in a headband or little booties. They're not too old for knitted accessories yet, so knit the toddlers in your life something great for a photo-op.
