Two Simple Heirloom Baby Gifts …
In Vintage Chunky and Summerlite 4-Ply
Shop Vintage Chunky
Baby gifts are always a treasure, and what's more … they're frequently great small, portable summer projects. Our very own Amy Loberg designed two timeless baby projects that are sure to steal any mother's heart.
Jessy's Baby Bonnet
Both simple and simply adorable, the second offering here is this sweet cotton bonnet with a ribbon tie. It's sure to be a family heirloom in Rowan's durable 100% cotton Summerlite 4-Ply. There's a bit of lacy detail without going overboard, so this would be an ideal project for girls or boys. Knit one in colors or go traditional with a basic white. You could also contrast the color of the ribbon to the yarn. Either way, this is sure to keep wee noggins warm for generations. If you knit the smaller size, you should be able to get two bonnets from a single ball of Summerlite 4-Ply.

Berroco Yarns Logo
Mitered Square Baby Blanket
There's always a need for baby blankets, and this one's attractive, versatile, and very simple to knit. Knit in just two shades of Berroco Vintage Chunky, the Mitered Square Baby Blanket features a basic checkerboard pattern. Each square is cast on or picked up directly onto the previous squares and is completely bound off before the next square begins. The project is very portable since—between blocks at least—there are no stitches to fall off your needles while it's jostled around from carpools to knitting groups to soccer practice and home.
While selecting colors, note that Main Color is also used in the trim around the outer edge of the blanket.

Selected by Rowan for their first Crochet Along this spring, Summerlite 4-Ply has been seeing something of an uptick in popularity. It's a fine, sturdy 100% cotton in fingering-weight. That makes it a great choice for lace and all manner of light-weight garments and accessories. And because it's 100% cotton, it's also machine-washable. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
