Hello! I have greatly enhanced the pattern to include:
-better graft instructions, better links and tutorials
-better layout (numbered pages and new branding)
-general pattern cleanup (Sweet Babies is one of the first patterns I ever wrote up!)

-6 different nature inspired cables found in my various designs and how to place them; per size

-how to add feet to the 2 smaller sizes (NB/SM)

-how to add a button down tab for newborns

-more pictures! :)

I’m SO excited to see what everyone comes up with!

For a good snug fit at the waist (eliminating the need for drawstrings), roomy garter stitch gusset and backside, and grow with your child fit Sweet Babies is THE longies pattern to rule all longie patterns!

Cloth Baby Layette is a collection of five simple, vintage inspired knitting patterns for cloth diapered babies. Using cloth diapers it can be hard to find patterns with the right fit over a bulky cloth diaper. 100% wool yarns make the best waterproofing in a cover, or you can knit snuggly cotton blend Sleepsacks or Sweet Babies items for babies who don’t use cloth diapers.

Sweet Babies is my long tested, original drawstring-less longies pattern with a plethora of options. You can make shorts or longer boardshorts or “mapris” and capris, bloomers, and skirted longies. You can choose from a wide array of different cuffs and even taper the legs for a “skinny” fit perfect for the snowy season where snow boots are a necessity. The grow with your child fit assures that your hard work will be utilized for more than one season.
