This design will be a loved staple to your little ones wardrobe. The design includes a few different ways to make it and you can pick when you get to that section and have a final say in your design. I have included instruction for long or short sleeve, button band in the front or back, button band or grafted crotch and 6 beaded designs available in both small and large charts (instructions given only with button band in the back), depending on the size you are making. If you chose to make it without the beads, just knit or purl the stitches and eliminate the chart instructions. If you have never used beads, this is a great way to give it a try. I have included step-by-step photo instructions with placing the beads at the end of the pattern to help you through. Happy knitting!

Beaded designs include: Hearts, Chicks, Fireworks, Cupcake, Pumpkin and Holly using 6/0 glass beads. The actual beads used for each design on included on each design chart.
