ONE PIECE AT A TIME LAYETTE
Babies are fun to knit for because they are cute, the clothes are small, and they are never heard to say “It makes me look fat!” If you start knitting when you get the happy news and make a new piece every so often, the newcomer will have a wonderful wardrobe when he or she arrives in person.
SIZE: all pieces are sized to fit a newborn. Chest of tank and T=19” in circumference. Cardigan is 2” bigger around and 1” longer to fit over other garments. Seat of pants=19”. Length of tank and T is 9.5”. Seam allowance is built into pattern.
YARN & GAUGE: 2 are given. Standard gauge and Passap knitters can use Tamm 3-ply. Stitch size 6 on the Japanese standard and 5.5 on the Passap produces a gauge of 7 stitches and 10 rows per inch. Bulky and mid-gauge knitters can both use Tamm Nordic, a light worsted. Nordic gauge is 5 stitches/8 rows per inch at stitch size 2 on bulkies or a larger stitch size on the mid-gauge.
BABY BOUTIQUE The Baby Boutique is a collection of machine knitting patterns for little people. Most of the patterns may be knitted on any machine. Sizes and yarns are given in the table of contents which begins below the Add to Cart button and continues at right.
