I found a pattern that called for knitting two strands of 4 ply yarn together. For this project I used Bendigo Woollen Mills 4 ply yarn in a baby mint green and contrasting white. This yarn is beautiful to knit and the 2 strands give a very soft but full loft that is different from using a regular 8 ply yarn. Just lovely for baby knits.
The outfit consists of a jumper worked in two contrasting colours and some leggings worked in a single colour. This was a delightful combination and produced a very pleasing result.
The pattern is available from Patons Book 5000. A matching hat, bootees and teddy are also included in the design.
