By Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne
The best baby things are simple: chic for babies to wear, parents to launder, and knitters to crank in multiples, like these bibs and burp cloths.

What better fiber for a baby bib than dishcloth cotton? We love Rowan Handknit Cotton for these. The absorbency and launderability are essential. Babies mess bibs up like crazy, so consider knitting a tidy stack of them.
These simple, square-ish bibs knit up as quickly as dishcloths. Think of them as mini-dishrags with a special button-on-baby upgrade.
As for the burp cloths, studies show that babies who spit up onto burp cloths that display interesting textures, patterns, and colors do better on their SATs than babies who spit up onto plain white diapers or parental shirtfronts. Give that special baby an edge: get knitting.
