It’s actually quite easy to make absolutely beautiful clothes for a baby, especially knitted baby sweaters if only you have enough patience and choose good-quality yarn. Sweaters can be the first step toward handmade wardrobe – they are simple in shape, and their small size makes them work up quickly.
