I love the geometric look of mitered squares. I think babies and their moms will appreciate these colorful items. It is a nice change of pace from all the pastels. Choose any four colors that you love. You can even coordinate it with the baby's room. This design is suitable for both boys and girls.
I recommend that all baby items be washable. The models in the pictures are made from knit Picks Brava Worsted, two skeins of each color you choose. This yarn is baby soft and washable, so it is very suitable for the project.
