I am having some problems with my web pages, so I have made these patterns temporarily available from my personal knitting blog.
Available in English and Norwegian here:

This onesie is knit in one piece, so no need to seam little pieces in the end. The ribbing allows it to fit the baby for as long as possible. The raglan sleeves make for a better fit, and is not bulky, even when it is a bit big.

I also recommend sewing on two sets of buttons in the crotch, so that you can vary the length.
Babywool is very soft merino wool, and can very well be used straight on the skin. If you´re not a wool lover, I recommend some other soft, natural fiber, like bamboo, milk or cotton. Steer away from synthetic fibers.*

Denne bodyen strikkes i ett stykke, slik at man slipper å montere den til slutt. Den er ribbestrikket, og strekker seg derfor svært mye i bredden. Raglanermet gir en god passform, som ikke er klumpete selv når den er litt stor i størrelsen.
I tillegg foreslår jeg at du syr på to sett med knapper i skrittet, slik at bodyen kan varieres i størrelse.
Babyull er svært myk merinoull, og kan godt brukes rett på huden. Men om du har en ull-allergiker, eller ikke er så glad i ull, anbefaler jeg Viking Garns Pure Milk Fiber.
