Buttercup Baby Wrap
The Buttercup Baby Wrap works well in DK acrylic, or wool blend. The wrap can be finished in a weekend or two, and makes a perfect gift or accessory for any little one. This may be considered an intermediate level pattern because you’ll be making unique yoke increases and working the garter stitch border at the same time. The wrap is designed to fit a newborn or infant, with bigger needles and yarn, this can easily be made larger to fit a toddler.
Newborn: 14” chest, 8” height neck to hem, 5” sleeve
3-6mo Infant: 16” chest, 10” height neck to hem, 6” sleeve
