My Baby Basics e-book is now available from Ravelry and my website, I love being able to provide such an easy set for new and experienced knitters alike. Complex designs are well and good (very well and good!) but there are times when you find a design which contains all of the elements you require, with no tricks.
I made garments like these when Holly was a baby, because I was unexperienced but knew what I wanted, something that was easy on, kept baby's body warm and didn't have sleeves. I had completely forgotten about them until I saw a photo of her as a 6 week old wearing one...and snap, bang the collection threw itself together.
However the problem with a collection "throwing itself together" is that sometimes you make mistakes, and I made a big one (this is why we have tech editors and test knitters - all of whom are worth their weight in merino) I used the wrong number as the stitch gauge when writing up the patterns...I have a feeling it is because I used another pattern as a template (now I have a dedicated template with NO numbers on it!) however the problem was discovered and remedied quickly and the sizes are spot on now.
I love the look of the buttons facing forward to secure the garment, but you can use i-cord ties or ribbons if you wish. I also like the idea of working them up in lightweight cotton or bamboo yarns as beach cover ups for when it gets a bit breezy.
The price of the e-book is $15.00 NZ, which currently equates to around $11.30 US
The set covers sizes 0 - 4 yrs
