An easy to knit jacket, knit from the top down, then add the knit hood. This can be done on a circular needle, or straight needles. Very easy stitch detail pattern for around center of chest, gives a great deal of style! This fits up to 12 months. Uses only 3 buttons, as most babies and toddlers cant keep the buttons closed by the tummy anyway. Uses 2 strands of sport weight yarn held together. Work goes quickly! Knitting needles, US #6, # 9, # 10. Different size needles used instead of many decreases to fit well.
