Baby Bloomers

Baby Bloomers

5.50

An interesting construction with no seaming makes it ideal for the comfort of small babies. A quick knit completely in the round with a nice high rise in the back. A good excuse to learn short row shaping and Kitchener stitch. Make this in a non-superwash wool and it is an ideal soaker for cloth diapers.
