There were lots of fun patterns for children noted the other day. The forum pattern thread is always a great resource for more information about a specific pattern, and it’s easy to find cute, new looks in the Flickr pool. Here’s a round-up of some of your current, favorite kid patterns.

Rebekah from Rebekah Bland’s Blog wrote in about the Favorite Things Little Hooded Jacket pattern and made a darling version (see it here). In our non-stop search for cute boy clothing inspiration we just had to share a picture of the Easter clothes she recently made with a vintage pattern for her little guy.
