This little jacket is quite fast and easy to knit. I’ve made a couple of these jackets for my children and they work fine in just any yarn with which you get gauge. If you work the edges in rib instead, it will be more “boyish” if that’s bothering you…

Materials: 3-4 skeins of Hjertegarn Bamboo (max 600m/660 yards), 3.0mm needles or size needed to obtain gauge, Tapestry needle, 6 small buttons
Gauge: 26-27 sts to 10 cm/ 4” on 3.0mm needles over Stockinette sts.
Size: to fit size 6-9months, depending on child’s size and how you prefer the fitting.
Final measurements: chest circumference 50 cm/ 19” and length to shoulder 25 cm/10”. Sleeve length 17 cm/7”.

Skills needed:
k=knit
p=purl,
k2tog= knit 2 together
yo=yarn over
m1=make one (pick up loop between sts, k loop twisted)
Double moss (double seed st) = Rows 1 and 2: k2, p2 across. Rows 3 and 4: p2, k2 across. These 4 rows form the pattern.
