Give a new arrival the warmest of welcomes with this beautiful jacket. It is quite easy to knit since it is worked in one piece, with simple but effective stitches that even a beginner can manage. The functional two-color design opens to a realm of possibilities: you can even match it to your new baby’s nursery colors!
Give your love to a little love bug with this jacket.
Notes: The jacket is knitted top down: circular yoke worked first, then back and fronts as one piece. Instructions are written for size 3 months, with 6/9 and 12 months in brackets (,). If only one number is given it applies to all sizes. Pink yarn is referred to as Color 1; Green yarn - Color 2. Make sure your cast on is somewhat loose, as it will go over the baby’s neck.
