I need more advice from the moms out there!
I'm planning to make a layette based on this pattern, and I was intending to knit the front bands in to keep it simpler and minimize the number of seams.
I realized that if I do this I have to decide in advance which side the buttons and button holes go on, and I don't know the gender of the baby-to-be (note I'm also not using pink or blue yarn).
Should I do the bands separately, after the gender is announced, or is this not important to most new parents? I'm not experienced at knitting garments and wanted to get started right away in case I find myself in Do-Over Land (baby not due until Fall)!
Thanks for any advice!
