The Baby Brights Collection
Baby projects are portable and relatively quick to finish, making them a great option for summer crafting. The new Baby Brights collection is sure to be your go-to for baby showers, welcoming new babies, and first birthdays. With bright and happy colors of Alegria Grande, this complete layette is for all babies!
Alegria Grande is machine-washable, next-to-skin soft, and worsted weight. That’s a perfect combination for baby knits! The Baby Brights collection is a complete layette, for babies 0-12 months. We used 5 of the 10 Bocados colors for a gender-neutral palette. We look forward to seeing the combinations of Alegria Grande and Bocados you select for your perfect palette. Will it be a more traditional blue or pink version, inspired by team colors, or perhaps something completely different?
The pattern collection includes two sweaters, each with a matching hat. The Colorblock Pullover and Hat (top) are shown in Foil (MC), Bocados in Tahiti (CC1) and Teal (CC2). The Stripes Cardigan and Hat use Foil (MC), and five Bocados: Juanita (CC1), Turmeric (CC2), Spirulina (CC3), Tahiti (CC4), and Teal (CC5).
We are hard pressed to find anything cuter than the Mitts and Socks, knit all in Bocados, except perhaps when they are on the recipient! The Mitts feature Juanita (CC1), Turmeric (CC2), and Tahiti (CC3). From top to bottom, Spirulina (CC1), Juanita (CC2), and Teal (CC3) compose the Socks.
The Stripes Blanket is knit in garter stitch, making this a soothing summer knit! The finished project measures 36” square and is easily adaptable if you need something smaller or larger. Our sample Stripes Blanket is shown in Foil (MC), Juanita (CC1), Turmeric (CC2), Spirulina (CC3), Tahiti (CC4), and Teal (CC5).
The Baby Brights collection is available in booklet form, as a hard copy from your local Manos del Uruguay stockist and digitally through Ravelry. Knit as gifts or for your own little ones, we hope you’ll share your projects with us so that we can join in with a virtual “Awww” on Facebook, Instagram, and Ravelry.
