Baby Yarn Review: Plymouth Dreambaby DK Paintpot

Hello Noble Knitters. It's Donna and I'm the Knitting Doctor here at NobleKnits. Today I'm here to show you a yarn from Plymouth Yarn Company. It'a a baby yarn and it's called Dreambaby DK Paintpot

It comes in seven colors and boy, I'll tell you, these colors - not only are they Fair Isle striping so you get a nice little pattern in there, but the colors are not your typical baby pastels. It is the baby colors, but they are more intense, sort of middle of the road. So, your turquoise is a bright turquoise. Purple is a bright purple. Same with orange and yellow - you are definitely going to see these bright, happy colors. 

There's 174 yards per ball on this, 100% machine washable and dryable. Obviously, it's a DK weight knitted at 5.5 stitches per inch on a size US 6 needle. 

There is a free baby hat knitting pattern on our website. It's very, very cute and fits up to a 2 year old. No fancy stitches required for this project. The self striping nature of the yarn is going to give you the pattern and the appeal.

I'm also going to show you a couple of really cute knitting patterns from Plymouth that are made to go with this yarn. The first is a little top down baby tee knitting pattern and I'll show you the back of the pattern so you can see what it looks like in blue. Oh, that hat at the top is actually the free pattern that comes along with the yarn. This is a purchase pattern, it's a little t-shirt.

Next we have a really cute little baby cardigan pattern and here's the back view. Now here's a shawl collar baby cardigan. This pattern fits up to an 18 month, it does not go up to a 2 year old size. The rest of the patterns do go up to a 2 year old size. The next one, of course, is a little baby smock or tunic knitting pattern. Not only does this one go up to a 2T, it goes up to a 4T as well. So again, very simple and easy to knit patterns - let your fiber do the striping for you and the interest.
