The “Wee baby set” is my latest addition to the collection of designs that I make for babies and children. This time it is the smallest ones that I had in mind. This set of cardigan, romper, bonnet and legwarmers is designed to be as comfortable as cute. The broderie anglaise lace-pattern embellishes the whole set.

YarnI used Yaku 4/16 from CaMaRose to work the set. This yarn, of fingering weight, comes in balls of 50 gr/1.76 oz. Yardage: read under each garment below.
Needle size: 3 mm/US2.5

26 sts and 36-38 rows in stockinette sts = 10 x 10 cm/ 4 x 4”.

The cardigan
The garment is completely seamless.
The cardigan is a cross-over cardigan, with overlapping fronts, buttoned on each side of the body. It is knit bottom-up in one piece to underarms where work is split for right and left front and upper back. Decreases are worked towards the garter edges. Sts are picked up around the armholes and sleeves are worked top-down and in-the-round.

The romper
The romper is completely seamless.
