I knitted some of these already and velvetspun is horrible to knit with!( I definitely recommend another type of washable yarn-. First, new mommies don't have time for the care that velvet takes and second I think velvet probably looks better in crochet- I don't think it looks right in knit. However, be sure to use a smaller needle when doing the head (with whatever you are knitting with) I had really big gaps! I hope this advice is helpful for you! You may want to use Bernat pipsqueak it is soft and machine wash and dryer safe! Happy knitting and congratulations on your soon arriving baby!
