What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a great beginner pattern or for any seasoned knitter! Quick knit as it is garter stitch on straight needles! The instructions include using one strand of bulky (5) weight yarn (baby in pink sweater). Try adding boa or eyelash yarn from your stash with a worsted (aran) weight (4) to make is extra special. I have made so many of these over the years, I don’t even look at the pattern! Every set that I have given as a gift has been extremely well received. Many mothers have passed it down from child to child, wash after wash and it still looks fresh and new! You will need to know how to knit back and forth on straight needles. All parts are knit flat and seamed together. Sizes in pattern are for 6 months and 12 month size.
