I made this set for my sister’s new baby, Nicholas. The yarn is Paton’s Silk Bamboo, in “Sea” and “Ivory.” The yarn is a little slippery, but not too bad to work with. It doesn’t split like a lot of craft store yarns do.
The patterns I used are:
This was quick and easy. My only mod was to use garter stitch instead of ribbing for the edge.
Pants – Pimp My Longies
These turned out a bit skinny, compared to regular newborn size pants, but Nicholas is kind of long and skinny, so I think they will fit him well.
Sweater – Garter Yoke Baby Cardi
This turned out a bit wide, I think. But it was easy to knit.
Booties - Seamless Baby Booties (top down)
I highly recommend this pattern! I made mine a bit smaller by doing fewer short row rounds to shape the front of the bootie. I was happy to find ribbon that matched so well!
Hopefully I’ll get pictures of Nicholas wearing this soon!
