I have 2 skeins of Red Heart Baby Clouds yarn. I orginally purchased it to knit a baby blanket, but after about 40 rows, didn't care for how it was turning out so I frogged it. Does anyone have a cute idea/pattern for a newborn baby that I could use this yarn for? TIA!

Because of the yarn type and weight I wouldn't do any fancy stitches. I looked up the yarn on Ravelry and most people made baby blankets with it. I did do an advanced search with just the weight and yardage and came up with a few to check out though. The boucle type yarn will make these look different..obscure the stitches I mean, but they would still be cute.

I actually just made a Really Cute bunny cuddly for a baby. They are very popular right now and someone else said that you can do it with any yarn you'd like, since guage doesn't matter.
