The Precious Baby Sets
Our new Precious Baby Sets are basically four patterns rolled into one pdf! This little collection of designs contains written instructions for matching cap & bootie sets in two different styles, Bambina and Bambino.
You only need 1 skein of Class to knit up a pair of booties and a matching cap... Making this a $12 project!
The pattern is available on its own for $5, but we will provide the pattern for free with your purchase of Class!
For an extra $3, we will include 3 yards of a locally hand dyed silk ribbon for your Bambina booties and cap. Choose your color preference in the drop down menu just above the 'add to cart' button when shopping for Class!
The differences between the set's Bambina and Bambino styles are simple yet effective. The feminine Bambina version has a silk ribbon drawstring around the bootie cuffs and cap brim, while the more unisex Bambino version has ribbed edges and an adorable little I-Cord curlicue at the top of the cap.
The booties and caps are knitted flat instead of in the round, so those of you who don't like double points have nothing to fear. The simple construction and minimal seaming means you can whip these up in just a few hours! Last minute baby shower gift? No problem.
There are a few intermediate techniques that you'll need to be acquainted with before beginning. For example, the booties require picking up stitches and working short rows, and the caps have basic K2TOG decreases and an optional I-Cord for the little loop on the Bambino's crown.
While we only have 5 colors of Class to choose from, we don't think there will be any issues finding one that's just right for the wee one. Are you going to go with the classic Powder Pink, Pale Blue, or Lavender? Or are you leaning towards the gender neutral Beige or Light Grey?
