Over sized, cuddly hoodie to keep baby warm, and long pants which cover cloth nappies. This sweater runs large, each size fitting well up to the next size.

This pattern has undergone an extensive re-write, the garment has not changed but the instructions have. The knitted on hood has been clarified to such a degree that I feel the grafted on hood instructions are no longer necessary.

The pattern includes a chart and a diagram with sweater measurements.

Thank you to my lovely customers who have requested this pattern while it has been on vacation, I do hope you find the new version worthy. If you have purchased this pattern previously you should have been sent a link to the updated pattern, if not please email or PM me.
