This listing is for the knitting pattern only. It is a .pdf file that is available for immediate download after purchase.
This pattern is originally from New Lux, 1952 Edition. This is no longer in circulation, so in order to make it available for more vintage loving knitters, I am transcribing the instructions exactly as written in the original pattern book and offering them here.
Directions are for VINTAGE Infant/Chile size 6 months, 1 year. Sizing is according to this chart from the original pattern book:
Year - ВЅ - 1
Chest - 19вЂќ - 20вЂќ
Waist - 19вЂќ - 19 ВЅвЂќ
The pattern is the same for both sizes, you just change needle sizes - so if you wanted to make this even bigger, just change needles and/or yarn to get a bigger stitch, and use this same pattern.
Original yarn used was:
Baby Yarn - 5 oz (for the 4-piece set of Jacket, Bonnet, Bootees, and Mittens)
You can google vintage yarn and get the specifications you need to shop around for modern equivalents.
Gauge: 9 sts x 12 rows = 1" on size 1 needles
6-months = size 1 needles
1 year = size 2 needles
6 yards 1/2" Baby Ribbon (for the 4-piece set)
