Bright colors, seamless construction, and easy-care yarn come together in this layette for newborns to one-year-olds.
We chose the worsted weight superwash yarn, Alegria Grande, to make this collection full of quick (and washable!) knits for all babies! Alegria Grande Bocados, mini 25g skeins of Alegria Grande, are perfect for the pops of cheery accent colors throughout the collection.
One pattern booklet includes the instructions for 2 sweaters, 2 hats, a blanket, a pair of mitts, and a pair of socks -- perfect to outfit the newbie in your life!
