So often we help folks that haven't knit or crocheted in (20+) years, looking to make something special for a new member of the family. What is it about a new baby that causes us to return to our abandoned craft? We may never know. What we do know is this, they remember the basics but that's about it. They want something easy to make, yet special.
Handmade is always special, no matter what! Whether it's a blanket or hospital hat, knit or crochet, yarn choice can make all the difference in the journey and the overall use of the finished project.
Dear Love is a very simple lovie that incorporates simple crochet with a simple knit. Dear Love is made with our favorite worsted weepaca by Big Bad Wool. It's a special blend of washable merino wool and baby alpaca that is safe for delicate washing. Another fine option is a cotton version using worsted Pima 100 by Berroco. Both yarns can be found in-store or on our web-site.
No baby on the way? Cast on anyway and have one on hand, ready to gift.
