Pattern Edited On August 8, 2017

This Baby project is knitted as one rectangular piece then folded like an envelope to receive the newborn and keep her/him warm. It makes an easy quick gift for any expectant mother.

I included newborn size along with suggestions to customize dimensions and accommodate bigger babies.

The pattern is worked as one piece and presented in three parts: Hood Section, Back Section, and Front Section. The Hood Section is worked in garter rows then the Cast On edge is folded in half and joined to form the hood. The Back Section is worked in repeated pattern of Fisherman’s Rib, bordered and interrupted by garter rows. The Front Section is the same as the Back Section with the addition of the buttonholes.

After I finished writing this pattern, I discovered that the yarn I used is discontinued and replaced by another brand. Luckily the yarn brand does not affect the pattern in any way. So if you could not find the same yarn, any Aran worsted weight yarn will work perfectly for this project.

Before starting on this project please make sure you master the following:

• Cable Cast On or Provisional Cast On
• Garter Stitch
• Fisherman’s Rib (K1b, P1)
• Button Holes
• 3 Needles Bind Off
• iCord

Enjoy :)
