Notes

This was more of challenge as far as prep. I had to scale down the pattern to make it fit for an infant because I used a thicker yarn. Caron Simply soft is not a normal thickness worsted weight but it is definately not baby thin yarn.

Main body: 17-10-34-10-17 stitches.

I also stitched the sleeves directly into the body doing Decressing HDC only under the arm for 2 rows. It worked out perfect. Did as many rows to match 6.5 inches.
Body & skirt lengths I matched inches not rows from pattern.

I love how it turned out and it is supper soft.
