This is my first pattern and kit for babies with the pattern writing help from Tricia. The stitch is really interesting to knit on the body part and you can learn how to do a three needle cast off on the shoulder. I've added lots of size breaks and a tiny size for a premature baby and a newborn size too so there should be a size to suit.
Skill Level: Intermediate
Knit One Kits top tip: I have introduced you to a 'three needle cast off' on the left shoulder. Its dead easy but if you're not feeling brave then just cast off as usual. Instructions are in the pattern. It makes for a very neat seam.
Kit contains: The yarn is Katia Merino 100% double knit (machine washable at 30 degrees) and copy of pattern. To keep the cost down to you I have given you part of a ball for the contrast colour
