These soft, heavy worsted weight yarns make the set quick to work up, yet still be light enough for baby - the 3 month size uses under 6 ozs. of yarn. Use 2 colors to highlight the stitch patterning or use one color for a more textural look.

From left to right, the samples are worked in Cascade Yarns Eco wool yarn, Beaverslide wool, then Webs Naturals 50% Bluefaced Leicster / 50% Alpaca blend. Or you can use your favorite soft, heavy worsted weight yarn..
