Knit Shell Bunting

Lion Brand® Jamie® Pompadour

GAUGE:

With larger needles in pat st: 21 sts = 4"; 36 rows = 4" [10 cm] 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.

NOTE:
If you wish 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.

Knit Shell Bunting Reviewed by A. Barnes on 2013-01-20 ****
This is such a cute pattern! And easy to follow! After finishing up this one that I'm making for my sister-in-love, I plan to make a couple more for charity.
