I've met customers in the shop who are afraid of making intentional holes in their knits and veer away from lace patterns. This would be a lovely way to ease yourself in with a simple 2 row lace repeat. There is no underestimating the need for truly simple knits with everything else that is happening in the world.
These patterns are knitted in King Cole Cherish DK (the variegated yarn) and King Cole Cherished DK (the solid sister of Cherish) which are a super soft acrylic blend made just for babies. I would also recommend looking at using King Cole Finesse DK, it is a gorgeous yarn with cotton and silk that is soft, washable, super smooth and drapey.
Knitted on 3.25 and 4mm straight needles and you will need some handsome buttons to finish depending on your garment choice.
NB: These patterns are sized from 0-7 years so just keep an eye on the size chart to choose the one you want.
