Will this fit a newborn?

Cathy said...

It should-Depending upon the size of the baby. It was right for my first grandson, far too small for the third grandson who needed an 80 sts cast on for his large head at well over 8#'s. . However his twin sisters born this week needed a 56 sts cast on as they were just 6# 3 and 6#5 oz.

Happy knitting!
