This DB pattern is taken from the book Debbie Bliss Simply Baby that I was able to get from the library :muah: I really liked and would be tempted to knit almost all of the 20 patterns in this book. Very nice collection of baby things from birth to 2 years.

This was suppose to be made of Debbie Bliss Cotton Double Knitting yarn to a gauge of 20st, and 39 rows on size 6 needles (the pattern is row dependent). I knit mine with Lion Brand Wool-Ease, and got gauge (or close enough :)) with a size 1 needle. :shrug: :lol: The main color is Mushroom and the CC is Blue Heather. This is 9-12 month size.

I really like this little jacket, in fact I have started one in a smaller size already. The DB patterns seem to run a little big, I think.

Thanks Jan and Slim.

I forgot, the pattern was called Roll Edge Jacket.

I chose 3 skeins of mushroom the last time I went to the city with nothing in mind specifically. When I decided I wanted to try this jacket in it I went to my trusty stash and found the blue. My DH found the buttons for me when he went shopping for "buttons about 'this' big, in as close to this scrap of blue yarn you can find, or anything else you find that you think would work."

That jacket is beautiful! Looks very expensive - something you would find in a nicd department store - & you would pay lots of $ for!

So cute!
I bought that book this summer and though I haven't made any projects out of it yet, there are quite a few drool spots (my own) on my pages because all those patters are so darn cute!

just kidding about the drool...
