We love the ‘70s, retro style of this one by Nikki Van De Car. Made with gor­geous, soft cot­ton (per­fect for baby’s skin), the de­sign will knit up very quickly in sim­ple stock­ing stitch – so it’s per­fect for be­gin­ner knit­ters (or those with im­mi­nent ar­rivals). Pick up the edg­ing us­ing rice stitch as fol­lows: Rice stitch Row 1 (WS): Knit. Row 2: P1, *kltbl, p1, re­peat from * to end of row. Us­ing your MC, cast on 96 stitches.
