This very cute little hat and booties set would make a great gift for the newborn. It is very quick to knit up and would be suitable for both the beginner or intermediate knitter. Hat and booties can have a lot of Fair Isle (pattern comes with full graphs for both sizes), or no Fair isle, which makes for a super quick knit. Booties can be knitted in a night. SIZE - Approx.
