Is it just me, or do babies seem to come in multiples? I’ll go years with no new babies to knit for, and then: wow! Three or four friends are pregnant in the same year. I could plan ahead and just steadily knit baby items so they’re ready when I need them, but then, how would I customize them to fit the little baby personalities they will become?

The solution? These sport weight henleys are fun to knit up and easy to customize with colors, stripes and buttons to complement each baby’s individual temperament and style. Knit up with sport weight yarn, they are quick, but not bulky; and in superwash, they require minimal care. Sizes run a little big, and arm lengths are longer than industry standard to provide room for little babies to grow!
