Ready for a fun knit?
You get to try out Laura’s unique seamless side-to-side Novus Construction and make a sweet little baby sweater!
Baby Novus is a gender-neutral wrap sweater, easy to put on a baby and keep on! Baby Novus is knit in two halves, sleeve to neckline, and then joined in the back and side seams with garter stitch panels.*
As with all of Laura’s designs she has loads of tutorials to help you with the tricksy bits! The Novus construction is a blast, and this is a great way to check it out!
