Instructions for a really practical round neck or v neck cardigan with matching beanie hat and bootees.  It is knitted in a lightly textured stitch on reverse stocking stitch.  This pattern is worked with buttonholes on both sides of the bands so it is truly unisex if knitted in neutral colours, and it can be made well in advance of knowing what baby's gender is. Once you know, you have just a few minutes work to sew up the unwanted buttonholes and sew the buttons over the top. It is knitted in either 4ply or dk yarn depending of what size you wish you knit.

All my patterns are tested by independent knitters before they are released, so every effort is made so that they come to you error free.

Although my patterns are strictly protected by copyright, which I ask you to respect, I am more than happy for any items made from my patterns to be sold.
