This comfy little bunting has a button-front closure and a lapped back opening to allow for seatbelts in car seats or strollers. Perfect for an advanced beginner, this baby bunting is the best way to keep your little one cozy and secure during trips and doubles as a wrap for chilly nights.

Knit flat from the top down to the bottom of the button opening then joined to knit in the round to the hem. Sleeves are knit in the round to the cuffs. Button bands and flaps for the seat belt slot are picked up and knit after the body is finished. I-cord tie draws the bottom together to keep out the cold but can be opened for easy diaper changes.

Requires 3 skeins/651yds main color, 1 skein/217yds contrast color.
