a baby shower gift


I made this for one of my cousins. The pattern for the gown is from one of my own you can find it HERE
I did make adjustments to my pattern to make it to a non burial gown and make it more NB size.
I added 5 extra stitches per arm, I CO when starting with 93 stitches instead of 74 and I took the k 3 from beg and end of row and sewn gown up in back instead of leaving open like you do for burial gowns.

Nice gift. Are the other items for the shower too? I love the little lamb and the booties.

Tell your mom we appreciate her lamb here at KH. Is he knit or crochet, I can't tell with certainty in the picture?

the lamb pattern is from http://www.lulu.com/content/907313

She changed the ears though...

The booties are from: http://www.saartjeknits.com They work up very easy. My mom also made the back sheep for me to match.. Both a perfect pair!
