Points North Kit
If ever you need a back-pocket pattern, it’s when you’re knitting for new babies. Something that’s small and manageable, gender-neutral and so cute it becomes your signature gift. Practical enough that it will be worn (and not just for that newborn photo shoot!) and classic enough to look vintage. Too good to be true? This one ticks off every box.
Using a handpainted sock yarn, this set is speckled, soft and sweet. Choose a grey (Solstice, shown here) or an orange (we love Pumpkin Juice!) for parents who are waiting to find out, Matthew and Marilla for the perfect blue-and-brown or any number of soft colors for anyone who can’t resist pink (Melissa loves White Way of Delight and Liz’s favorite is September Forever). The hat comes in four sizes, ranging from newborn to 12 months, and the booties come in one size that will fit most babies through 12 months. They’ll stay on your little one’s feet, as they’re legitimate socks–with an added curled-up toe! And of course, our greatest source of inspiration comes from the world’s northernmost toy workshop and its enchanting employees.
