My Latest Knitting Design 'Lara'

I've probably said before that I love to knit with Sirdar Snuggly.  I  fell in love with this gorgeous shade of dusky pink and designed the outfit around the yarn.  

I felt that a complete outfit in just the one shade may look a little heavy for a young baby so I added this delightful mingled yarn from the Sirdar Snuggly Kisses range called Patter Pink.

The outfit consists of a cardigan, nappy cover, beanie style hat and bootees.  The whole outfit takes less than 200grams of double knitting yarn and is knitted on size 3.25mm & 4mm needles.

The jacket has lace panels running up each front and features picot detailing along the hem line and on the cuffs.  The same lace panel is used on the front of the nappy cover.  I always like to add an elasticated waist to baby shorts ensuring a snug fit for little ones.

I originally thought to add a bonnet to the outfit but on reflection I am pleased with my decision to go with a beanie style pull on hat.

The completed outfit is sized to fit a baby 0-3 Months but would also be suitable for a reborn collectable doll 19-21"

If you would like to knit the outfit you can find the pattern on my website here: 

I have also listed the design on my Ravelry page here:
