From the pattern:

Gift woollies for new prince
These two garments are part of a nine-piece layette sent to the Queen for her new baby, Prince Andrew, by the Yass (N.S.W.) Graziers’ Association. Yass district is noted for its fine wool. HERE are the directions for knitting the frock and bonnet. Both are trimmed with rosettes embroidered after the knitting is done.

BONNET from layette is in a lacy stitch to match the frock, and is embroidered with tiny rosettes.

FROCK is suitable for baby boy or girl, has rosette trim on bodice, and is finished with a ribbon tie.
