:-) I want my designs to stand out, not only for their simple classic lines, but also for the well written and illustrated pattern.
I hope you will let me know how it works out for you and let me know if you need any help. I would really love to see photos!

This Simple Classic Baby Jacket in Garter Stitch is always a big hit with everyone. Babies love the comfortable fit and luxurious softness of the yarns and Moms love the elegant look and stylish details. The fit is comfortable giving you ease for fitting and Baby lots of room for growing.

You work the collar then yoke to the underarm and divide the sleeves from the body. Each is worked separately, in the round, with no sewing or finishing except to sew on the buttton when you wash and block.
