As a knitter, it is my firm belief that babies should wear handknits as often as possible. Not only to keep the baby snug, warm and comfortable, but as the baby grows, all too quickly, into an opinionated toddler and child, he or she is more likely to continue wearing handknit sweaters if accustomed to it right from the start.
This baby pullover is suitable for a boy or girl. Knit in soft and durable organic Katydid, it is comfortable for the wearer and durable enough to be passed down as it is outgrown. The simple lace and cable panel at the center front is an easy to remember four-row repeat. The buttons at the shoulders make slipping it over the head easier for the baby and the dresser.

Part of the Verde Collection of environmentally conscious yarns, Katydid is a 100% organic cotton ribbon. Katydid's ribbon construction gives it a quick knitting gauge and sophisticated look. This warm-weather yarn comes in a bright, summer-friendly palette.
