Over the last couple of weeks I've been busy working on a new knitting design. I wanted to do something a little 'traditional' but also wanted the design suitable for the 'modern' mum too.I am really happy with the finished pattern which I have named Jacob. I love to see new baby's dressed in white and the addition of pale blue just adds that little 'something'. I think the design would work equally as well for a baby girl using pale pink to trim rather than the blue.
Very simple to knit using a mock bobble stitch with a rib design the pattern knits up surprisingly quickly using double knitting wool (light worsted). Size 3.25mm needles are used on the ribbed edgings changing to size 4mm for the main pattern.
The traditonally styled helmet is tie fastening under the chin and features an oversized pom pom which adds to the cuteness factor.The completed set is sized for a newborn to 3 month baby. I have modelled the outfit on a reborn doll who is 21in long.
If you would like to knit the outfit you can find the pattern on my website where it can be sent via email in pdf format or if you prefer I can print and post the pattern to you.
