This baby blanket is the perfect size! It’s perfect for car seats and strollers, and it’s small enough for a baby to carry around as his/her favorite blankie as s/he grows. This lovely pattern will find many uses in years to come.

4. & 5. Beautiful Baby Bonnet & Booties

Erika Knight designed this gorgeous, vintage-style pattern set several years ago. The hat is more of a short beanie with the most adorably sweet lace pattern around the brim. And it matches the precious Mary Jane-style booties perfectly.

No need to wait for the weather to get cooler again…

What are you waiting for? Spring is here, and there’s no better way to welcome it than a delightful baby knitting project!.
