A cute little 3D plane soars between fluffy clouds in a beautiful blue sky. Who wouldn’t be carried away by such a charming scene? This delightful little top will look gorgeous on any baby.
This pattern has a super simple construction with minimum shaping, so is a great choice for a beginner’s project. It’s fashionable and uncomplicated design is also loose fitting, meaning a fast growing baby gets the maximum time out of your adorable knit!

Finished measurements
Height – 25cm/10in
Circumference – 50cm/20in
This is designed to be a loose fitting top, so I have given a circumference measurement rather than a chest size. The finished size should naturally be somewhat bigger than the baby you intend to put in it!
The measurements are based on standard industry sizing for a 6 month old, but remember, all babies are different!

You Will Need
Approximately 75m (82 yds) White and 230m (251 yds) Blue DK yarn
(I used Malabrigo Arroyo in Natural and Azules, one skein of each was more than enough.)
4mm straight needles (or size needed to obtain gauge)
2 15mm buttons
A pinch of toy stuffing or scrap yarn
