Pattern Description:

This wee sunsuit and hat set was created for my friends, Carol Ann and John, who are expecting a baby girl named Emma Mae Louise (or Lulu). Lulu's parents love the beach, as do many of our fellow San Diegans. Taking inspiration from the ocean waves and sandy shores, I designed a simple, stylish sunsuit for baby Lulu that I know her parents will love!

The pattern includes BOTH the onesie and the hat pattern, so you get more bang for your buck! I also went with a yarn that costs less than most of the options at my LYS (and with great results!), but if you want to "upgrade" to a pricier yarn, Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino works great. :)
