King Cole are really loving this variation on a basketweave-check-pattern-thing and I can't say I blame them. What a cute little hooded cardigan and little wrap cardi, just made up of knits and purls, and a baby blanket and booties to go with it too! Simple, effective, cute. We love it.
We're definitely recommending King Cole's Cherished DK for this, as it's ultra soft and perfect for babies.
