View Full Version : Baby Yarn Recommendation Needed

04-26-2006, 08:58 PM
Hi all! My sis is going to have another baby :cheering: :D -- due in December -- and I found a baby cardigan pattern (knit from the top down) that I'd like to try:

pattern here (http://www.knittingpureandsimple.com/babycardi.html)

Any recommendations for a nice yarn? I want to make it extra special :-)I love the matching baby pants, but I haven't been able to find that pattern. I think I'd add a matching hat and booties. Since it is going to be a Xmas baby (like my sister and I...Holly and Joy), I was thinking of going with Xmas colors instead of baby colors...hmmm...I'm rambling now!

Bollicine Baby Night (http://www.yarn.com/yarns-knitting/bollicine.html) by Cascade is the YUMMIEST baby yarn I have ever met! :inlove: Its an extra-fine baby merino.

How about Shine worsted. It is soft and machine washable and with the cotton/modal blend should hold its shape well. Or how about a superwash wool?

I vote for Rowan Classic Cashsoft DK...same fiber content as Cashmerino...merino, cashmere, microfiber. Sooo soft, and machine washable! It's my baby gift yarn of choice :D
