Pattern Description:

Instructions for a reborn or baby side buttoning romper suit in dk yarn. The set comprises of a romper suit with a knitted in tree motif, pull on hat and pull on bootees. When knitted, this set will fit a newborn baby upto 5-6lb or an 18 inch reborn doll. You will need 150g of Patons Fairytale Velvet DK or Jarol Raffles, and 100g of 100% cotton yarn, 3.25mm needles, 4mm needles, 3 stitch holders, 14 buttons, and a few odd ribbon roses to complete.

This pattern has been designed by myself so it is in UK terminology. It does not follow the usual 'shop bought' format. There are 9 printed pages with clear and easy to follow instructions. All my patterns are tested by independent knitters before they are released, so every effort is made so that they come to you error free.

Although my patterns are strictly protected by copyright, which I ask you to respect, I am more than happy for any items made from my patterns to be sold.
