K551 Baby Jacket & Hat (preemie to 18 mos)

These pieces could be everyone's first knitting project. The cardis are worked in one piece, from the lower back hem up through the sleeves, over the shoulder, and down the fronts; at the finish, all that remains is to sew the side and sleeve seams. If you are easily bored and/or ambitious, try the striped version. Schrade, with her European attention to detail, does allow for buttonholes specifically on the boys's or girls' sides. Hats are worked flat and then seamed. Designs this simple look fabulous in any style of yarn, tweedy or slubbed or heathered or solid-- knock yourself out! Naturally offers lots of choices. Gauge given over garter.
