the End of Summer Baby Jacket
Designed with a growing baby in mind this long sleeve jacket for a newborn becomes a cropped 3/4 length sleeve jacket for a toddler.
Worked top down in a raglan style the upper body, sleeves and mini shawl collar are in reverse stockinette stitch while the lower body is worked in a 1x1 rib and finished with a kitchener bind off.
The use of different increases & a kitchener bind off being the most difficult parts of this jacket would make me rate it for the intermediate knitter, but with the bulky yarn it’s a quick knit.
The different needle sizes are #10.5 for the yoke & sleeves; #10 for the ribbing and #8 for the kitchener bo.
The different hook sizes are J for the crochet chain piping around the neck; G for making the buttons and D for the button loop.
