Knitting pattern for a cute baby jacket and dress. Quick to knit and makes a lovely baby shower gift for a newborn or for toddlers up to the age of 18 months.
Soft and fluffy sheep feature on the baby cardigan which is easy to knit in garter stitch and stocking stitch. The sheep are knitted on the fronts of the jacket and is a great pattern for trying your hand at intarsia knitting (picture knitting).
The dress is knitted in garter stitch and stocking stitch with a simple lace panel on the front.
The pattern for the cardigan uses 3 to 4 (dependant on size) 50 gram balls for the main colour in double knitting yarn DK/8 ply (11 wpi). A small amount of black double knitting yarn is required for the sheep plus 1-25 gram ball of Sirdar Snowflake DK yarn or similar fluffy yarn. The Dress requires 2-4 50 gram balls of double knitting yarn.
Tension - 22 stiches and 28 rows 10cm (4 inches) using 4 mm (UK8 - USA6) needles over stocking stitch.
