How to knit a baby crown

Updated July 16, 2013, 12:00 am Yahoo!7


Baby might as well wear a crown because we all know who rules the roost! This woolly design is perfect for keeping tiny heads warm and toasty. It’s worked in a regal lace pattern, in creamy merino baby wool.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Care must be taken with your child's handknits in a potential fire environment. This knitwear is not designed for sleepwear.
