This is a wonderful pattern worked in one piece in the round, so no seams to sew up - hurrah!
It knits up beautifully in Patons Fairytale Colour for Me DK.
It's so quick and simple that it's become my "go to" baby gift pattern. I'm trying to keep a couple on hand in blue and pink to save knitting into the wee hours when a friend makes a late announcement.
The buttons used are dish edged fruit gums in size 18 (11.5mm). I have a pack of 100 of blue and pink for this pattern, but the leftovers will make great embellishments for my card making stash.
Full credit for the pattern goes to Jacki Kelly at Complete Fabrication. Thanks for the freebie pattern! Jack also offers this pattern in larger sizes for a very reasonable $5.00. Pop along to her blog for full details.
