Sprinkle

Baby knits are great holiday gift knitting; they knit up quick and the recipients don’t yet have the verbal skills to complain about your color choices!

Find this pattern in Juju’s Loops (available in store). Knit it using Lorna’s Laces, a superwash wool that’s fabulously soft for baby items.

From the pattern author:

A lot of people come into Loop wanting to knit a gender-neutral baby sweater. It can make people really nervous as they weigh up the associations of each colour. Yes, they could knit in white or cream, but for those knitters who love colour and want to explore fun combinations, we designed Sprinkle. It is especially fun to knit in one of Koigu’s sprinkle colour combinations. You could choose a radical contrast to the sprinkle yarn or blend with one of its tones as we have done here.
