Designed by queen of the clever knit, Ainur Berkimbayeva, the little Pinwheel Baby Romper exceeds any notion of adorable we may have had! Aside from the baby wearing it, the highlight here is the pinwheel, a whimsical bib that evokes a whirligig in the breeze, a sand dollar on the beach, or a sweet William blossom in the garden. The pinwheel is also where you begin, casting on at its center, then working in the round and increasing at five points. Make another one for the back, then cast on stitches for the underarms and work the piece in the round down to the bottom, shaping the hips and gusset into an irresistibly voluminous puffball. Attached I-cords around the armholes finish as straps that tie over the shoulders and adjust with the baby’s size... smart and simple! You'll need just one or two skeins of our lovely 100% organically grown Buttercup Cotton, a machine wash- and dry-able sweetie with a super soft touch and very nice hand.
