Knitting for your baby is an act of filial love that is shared from generation to generation.
Baby knitting: which model to choose?
The comfort of the newborn must guide the choice of the model, but not only. A garment that is easy to put on and take off also contributes to his well-being. Models that are open on the front or back, such as a bra or vest, avoid having to put the garment on by the head, which is not very pleasant for the child. If you choose a sweater, make sure that the opening is wide enough or that it has a slit closed by a button. Not all baby's heads are the same size and it is better to choose an open style like a vest if your child has a big head.
The snood is a very practical model to protect the the neck of the child from the cold especially if he fell asleep during the walk. Neither too tight nor too loose, this garment has a certain flexibility that allows it to easily adapt to the child's morphology. Finally, the crush is the cap of the newborns. It is attached under the chin and stays perfectly in place. It is a small knitting project with many possibilities of fancy stitches.
Which wool for baby?
The choice of wool is an important aspect, because it ensures the well-being of the baby. A newborn's skin is thin and easily irritated. It is better to avoid coarse wools that can sting or itch. Pure wool guaranteed 100% natural is to be preferred to synthetic wools whose composition can cause skin reactions or act as an endocrine disruptor. Wool that is too hairy and badly twisted can be dangerous for children if they inhale lint. Choose a soft, well twisted knitting wool. The yarns in our knitting boxes are perfectly adapted to the needs of babies.
