This colorful, playful baby set is knit in an incredibly soft and snuggly cotton blend with minimal seaming. Two interesting color work techniques are employed that require only one color per row to create bubbly dots and tiny stripes. Unlike Fair Isle or intarsia knitting, there are no strands on the wrong side of the piece to snag on little fingers. Little Bubbles stitch can be worked flat, or in the round, and depends on strategically dropped and re-knitted stitches to form the colorful and textural pattern. One-row stripes worked flat are formed by an easy technique that requires only a circular knitting needle. Sizes are standard and correspond to body measurements given in each pattern. Since babies grow at unique rates, choose the best size for the recipient based on the measurements given in each pattern, rather than the age range.

First sold as a kit only. The original yarn used was the 100% cotton sport, which is now discontinued. Now shown in Comfy Sport. Now
