Free Baby Sweater and Booties Set Knitting Pattern
This free baby sweater and booties set knitting pattern was printed with the suggestion that it be knit using shell pink and turquoise with the smocking in turquoise blue.
The magazine article also included a matching bed jacket for the "convalescing" mother completing the ensemble. The size stated in the tutorial is three months, but the infant in the photo appears to be approximately six months old. This gave me pause, made me scratch my head and wonder as to the reasons Mom would still be recovering from birth that long after the fact. However, three months is the stated sizing of this pattern.
