I knit a lot of baby cardigans these days.
Thanks to Ravelry, I’m discovering a new world of intense cuteness.
I knitted multiple versions of the Garter Stitch Baby Kimono
But It’s a bit long to finish, usually takes me 3 to 4 weeks, working
Garter stitch is comfortable for babies, and it looks great, but it can
be a little boring.
I have no experience yet with babies, so I hesitate a lot when it comes
to choosing the right yarn.
I never know if it’s soft enough, if it’s easy to wash, if the parents
will like the colors…
I’m knitting a lot of Bergère de France baby yarn right now, so I
thought I’d review them :
- Ciboulette : I have the color Paille, a light yellow slightly turning white sometimes, very cute but
a bit fragile, pointy needles tend to tear it off. It says 2,5mm needles, I prefer 3mm so it’s not to tight.
- Caline : a bit thicker than Ciboulette, and more resistant. They say 3mm needles, it’s fine, 3,5mmnworks well too.
My hands are too dry, so I asked my family if they were soft enought, and they said yes.
