I have been knitting since I was 5 years old (and that's a very long time now!) Since my own children (and my grandchildren) are all grown up, it's lovely to be able to knit items that are pretty as well as practical and to use dainty rosebuds, pretty pearls and lashings of lace and ribbons. All of my patterns can be used for real babies too. I hope my designs bring you as much pleasure as they have brought me x
Also find me on Facebook (Wooly Wotnots) where you will find my hand-knitted items for sale plus baby items I can knit to order.
This stunning outfit is to knit in DK (worsted weight) baby yarn and will fit a 0-3 month baby or a 19-22" reborn doll.
The set consists of a gorgeous lacy matinee coat, knee length bloomers plus a matching lacy bonnet & bootees.
The bloomers have an elasticated waist and picot edges.
The rest of the set is decorated with knitting-in lace. I embellished the bonnet with a triple rosebud and pearl decoration in the centre of the crown and satin roses at each cheek but the choice of decoration is entirely yours.
The bootees tie with ribbon. I stitched satin rosebuds to each toe for this model.
This set will look absolutely heavenly when done. I have seen this done all in pure white and it was stunning!
