Baby jackets


These baby jackets are off to Melbourne to the Caroline Chisholm Society to donate to some new mothers who need a helping hand. The knitted jacket is very easy and knitted in one piece in garter stitch. using 3 ply yarn and 3.75 mm needles. The original pattern can be found here

Made some modifications to keep it simple. Did not make buttonholes but finished jacket with crochet edge after sewing up sleeves with a flat woven seam on right side. Added one small flat button only to jacket and used a crochet loop from the edging as a buttonhole.Used 50 gm ball of 3 ply for jacket plus small extra amount of yarn for crochet edge.
