Baby, You’ve Gotta Feel These Yarns!

Soft, Luxurious Chenilles: Cutie Pie & Velvety

In case you haven’t noticed, there are two new, unbelievably soft chenille yarns in the Red Heart family! The first is Cutie Pie, a lightweight chenille with a soft, cottony feel. The second is Velvety, a bulky chenille yarn that is silkier to the touch. Both are perfect for all kinds of things for the kiddies. Here are some ideas that we have asked our favorite designers to create for us so we can share the patterns with you.

Sweaters and Hats and Scarves: Kids won’t complain about clothes being “scratchy” and babies will actually like wearing them! The fashion-aware little girl will love this Cutie Pie cowl or vest and the Velvety jacket and headband!

Carry-Along Blankies and Baby Blankets: Babies will love being comforted with Cutie Pie and Velvety! Our carry along blankies feature an elephant and a kitty. Wouldn’t Cutie Pie be perfect for little stuffed animal friends or amigurumi?!

So next time you knit or crochet for a baby, have some fun trying one of these new chenille yarns. Both Cutie Pie and Velvety are 100% polyester and can be machine washed on gentle and tumble dried on low. Here’s what they look like in the stores…or you can order directly at redheart.com.

P.S. After making a blanket for the next baby shower, I’m thinking of making myself a cowl with Velvety… why should kids have all the luxury? Not sure if I want Kitty or Watermelon…hmmm.
