Shell Bunting

Lion Brand® Jamie® Pompadour

GAUGE:

With larger hook, 4 pattern repeats = 7" When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Work Rows 1 and 2 of pattern. Continue in pattern, alternating colors as before, and inc 1 st at each end of every row (working added sts as sc on Row 3, as dc on Row 2).

Buttonband On RS, using smaller hook and A, corchet 86 sc evenly spaced along left front edge. Work 4 more sc rows. Fasten off. Mark position for 5 buttons, the first centered at neckband, the 2nd at bodice band, the last at lower band and the remaining two evenly spaced between.

Sew top edge of each sleeve to armhole; then sew top 1" along each sleeve side edge to corresponding underarm. Sew sleeve and side seams. Sew on buttons.

NOTE:
If you want Baby to be able to wear Bunting while in car seat, do not sew bottom seam.  Bottom hem can be left "as-is" (the stockinette stitch will naturally roll) or you can pick up stitches along bottom hem and knit a few rows of garter stitch (knit every row if working Back and Front separately on straight needles or alternate rounds of knit and purl if using circular needles to work in the round) to flatten it, adding buttonholes evenly spaced, if desired, along one side and sewing buttons opposite to match.  Bottom hem may also be closed by sewing in a zipper or Velcro.
