As interesting as this pattern sounds, it is quite challenging. As the name suggests, this design has a hood to cover the infant. To knit this pattern, make sure you use a soft yarn as the hood would rest on the baby's face.
Sunshine Pattern

Using bold and bright colors, would fulfill the whole idea. It is quite complicated to knit, and even though it sounds cute and easy, it isn't. And yes, the most important element is to use the yellow color, without which the word sunshine wouldn't make sense.
If knitting isn't your cup of tea, crocheting is the option. Here are some easy crochet ideas you can read and try. Learning how to crochet is one of the best things you could do for your tiny angel.
