Bitty BoleroNewborns 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’t overheat, but also won’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.
