A lovely, easy to knit pattern which makes a super gift for the new arrival
The pattern consists of a round necked traditionally styled matinee type cardigan featuring a mock 'fairisle' effect achieved by the clever use of self patterning yarn. Knitted from the bottom up on two needles using easy to knit stocking stitch (stockinette stitch) and plain knit stitches throughout.
The matching hat and booties are a quick and easy knit but produce a really cute set especially if you decide to add the pom poms to the bottom of each ear flap.
The completed outfit is sized to fit a baby 0-6 Months but also suitable for lifesize reborn dolls 22-24in
To knit the set you will require approx 80g Double Knitting Yarn (Light Worsted) in main shade
Approx 60g Self patterning DK weight yarn/Light Worsted
Details of shades used in the above outfits are given on the pattern.
The set is knitted on size 3.25mm (UK10, US3) and 4mm (UK8, US6)
