This baby shrug is the perfect item for the transition to spring! (It’s also great for the indoors air conditioning when it’s 90 degrees outside – keep it in your diaper bag so you’re always prepared!) With no buttons or zippers, dressing your baby is a breeze. Knit top-down, this quick knit has minimal seaming.
