We wrap our babies tightly like burritos when they come home from the hospital, drape a blanket over them in the stroller, and cover them as we kiss them goodnight in their cribs. A blanket is the classic gift to welcome a baby, something that will be used every day for years. Home Sweet Home features iconic house silhouettes rendered in simple knit-purl textures. It is a bold geometric puzzle of a pattern to celebrate bringing a baby home.
