This is a knit-in-the-round pattern for a newborn. It has an easy 4 round chevron pattern to follow for the skirting and then is divided for the front and back bodice and straps using a stockinette stitch. Caron Simply Soft yarn is listed as a #4 medium weight worsted but is a thinner yarn than many worsted weights I have used. I like it because it is extremely soft for baby's tender skin. But just be aware of this if you plan to use a different brand of worsted weight yarn.
