My daughter asked me if I would make her Canadian friend a warm singlet for her baby.
When my daughter was first pregnant, I decided it was time for her to learn to knit and this is the pattern I chose for her very first project for her very first baby. She made her little singlet out of luxurious baby alpaca in newborn size and it fitted her tiny baby perfectly…until her partner washed it on a non delicate cycle in the washing machine (or did he wash it in a hot wash) and the singlet came out felted and small enough to fit a doll. I could tell she was devastated.
So this simple but gorgeous little singlet with the heart motif is the one I chose to make for her friend’s baby.
Here is my daughter’s baby modelling the singlet before it is sent off to Canada. Perfect fit.
