Leaf and Lace Set for 3 Months
In the “Forever Favorites--Fifty years of Family Classics” by Leisure Arts this pattern was changed just slightly--32 sts and 40 rows = 4 inches instead of 8.5 sts/inch, and they recommend Patons Kroy 3 Ply for the yarn and don’t mention the Beehive Baby yarn.
Patons #1092 contains only the jacket with a ribbon tie at the neck.
Bernat #530229 is currently available, and has two sizes -0/3mos and 6/12 mos. Gauge is 24 sts and 32 rows = 4”. References Bernat Softee Baby yarn. Instructions are in modern American wording. There is a chart for the leaf pattern, and sketch of the finished sweater with length of arms, cuffs, neck, etc.
“This little jacket with its round yoke extending into deep armholes is so easy for the baby to wear. The dainty leaf pattern has been adapted to the close-fitting bonnet and the easy lace to the bootees.” - Patons
