Pattern Makeover 1.15.18 The 2.0 version of Baby Tee includes longer lengths for more growing room and updated images along with a link to the online tutorial.

This fingering weight project is a perfect layering piece for mild fall or winter days but light enough for a summer baby. It’s worked from the top down with a simply sweet stripe pattern. • The onesie style neckline overlaps on each side providing room to go over baby’s head without a gaping wide neck or button closure. This top is seamless and has nothing more than end-weaving for finishing work. Instructions are included for both short and long sleeves. • Shown in 2 years with Baby Joggers (pattern sold separately). Pattern is written for intermediate-level knitters and an Online Photo Tutorial is available for the neckline technique.

The neckline on this sweater is definitely finicky to get going but it is so worth it and now I have a photo tutorial to make things even more clear! Because of the unique neckline, the pattern is recommended for intermediate-experienced level knitters

SIZING NOTES: Folks have commented that this sizing is small. As for my other patterns, I rely on the CYC Sizing Standards but of course wee ones are very tricky and don’t like to match up with expectations :) I always include schematics so that you can decide what size will work best for your bub! Don’t forget to make your gauge swatch and block it before you knit to get the most accurate representation of your gauge. Pattern was also updated to include more length (1.15.18).
