Newborns are soft and delicate, and are best suited to a knit item of similar qualities. Fingering weight wool is perfect in this regard, it breaths and baby won(tm)t overheat, but also won(tm)t be cold. Wool is a fantastic fiber, and this knit has one of my favorite features, it allows you to use your stashed up sock yarn! Select a super-wash so mom can have an easy time washing this sweet little top. The pattern also features little fold-over cuffs to cover the newborns hands, just like the little tops the hospitals dress them in. Pattern is knit from the top down, raglan style with scalloped crochet edging and fold-over cuffs. Pattern is intended to fit snugly and is the perfect design for wee newborns! Make sure that if you are knitting the newborn size that it is given to the new mom before baby is worn so that it can be used straight away, otherwise knit the next size up! Increases are worked by knitting into the front and into the back of a stitch (kfb). BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting, increase, decrease, simple crochet GAUGE 28 stitches and 40 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette Knit Flat Alternate Yarn: I suggest you pick a sock yarn as those are often super-wash, and you will want something that feels a bit silky to the touch.
