Knitting clothing is creative, but also has the potential to be thrifty. If necessary, a garment can be unravelled and knitted up again in a different size, with a contrasting welt and cuffs of some other yarn, or in stripes using up yarn from several old garments. Because the knitted up yarn has a structure that is capable of stretching, it also gives a certain amount of elasticity to accommodate a child's growth.
