My Godson and his very clever, lovely wife had their first baby today! There is always a touch of apprehension waiting for a new arrival, but she arrived safely and Mum, Dad, and baby are doing very WELL!
I have had a little coat waiting for her:
and a vintage flower button.
I have adapted a Debbie Bliss pattern.
I really like it as you knit the whole thing, back and both sides together, from bottom up and decrease for a raglan sleeve effect.
Then all you have to do is sew up the side and sleeve seams – magic!
