Your little pearl tucked inside our Seashell Baby Shirt + Dress is like a gift from the sea! Designer Ainur Berkimbayeva dreamed up this vision of nature meets nurture, inspired, as always, by a construction idea. In this case, Ainur wanted to create volume using short rows, and realizing that this would mean knitting her shirt and dress sideways, she added a purl ridge to highlight the form… and to create a perfect little scallop shell! For its beauty and super softness, Ainur chose our organically-grown-cotton-bamboo-hemp Santolina, a light fingering weight yarn with a little shine like the sea. Sized for newborns to two-year-olds, you'll just need a skein for the Shirt or two for the Dress!
