baby knitting

oh how sweet – knit up a cocoon for your newborn.


Pickles has a pattern for a whole newborn little baby kit, knit in a very simple yet stylish design – suitable for boys and girls. I love it. It includes jacket, booties and hat – I love the simple red and blue stripes on the little jacket.
