Bernat Baby Jacquards
I just love this yarn, as well as every pattern in the "Patty Cake" pattern book that uses all the Baby Jacquard yarn.

This is the third pattern from the book I have made, they are well written patterns and just adorable. I do think the sizes are a bit big however.

There are pants to match this top, haven't decided wheter to make them or not.

Oh, how sweet! You did a beautiful job of matching the pattern on the sleeves. Lovely work.

It looks lovely Ginny ! I am actually knitting this at the moment . I have done the back and front and i have to start the sleeves . Mine is in a different colour.
I have to agree with you . The booklet is brilliant .

Rita, what size are you knitting? Are you finding the size to be "big". "Next" time I think I would knit the skirt, to the armholes, in the round.

I am aslo doing the 6 months size . I think it is ok. . I think it looks big because it is flary . It is meant to hang loose , not fitted.
I will do the pants too when i have finished . Should look ok .
I just do not have a baby that big to try it on to see if they come up big .
The dress i made was a good fit . It was spot on for size .
I think it is a good idea to knit the skirt in the round . I do not see why it can't be done

That's so cute!
A little big in baby clothes shouldn't matter too much, they always grow out of things so fast.

I agree that the Baby Jacquard is lovely. I did the sundress for my 2 year old granddaughter, and next time I will knit it in the round from the hem up so there is no problem matching. On second thought, if I did that, then the pattern would be twice as narrow and might not look so good. Anyway, your dress came out just perfectly.

Ritaw inspired me several months ago, and I am glad I followed her lead.
