It's just a fact: kids look adorable in little onesies. This one is especially cute because it is knit using Hayfield's Baby Blossom DK, a synthetic yarn that has been dyed to create the look of Fair Isle patterning. You just knit in stockinette and the yarn creates the color bands and dots that look like flowers. The onesie is knit flat from the bottom up, beginning with the two legs. They are joined to begin the body, which is knit upward in one piece. At the armholes, the stitches are divided to complete the front and backs. The button band at the back is knit as you go and the body below the placket is seamed once you are done.The onesie is sized for infant to 2 years. Finished chest measurements are 18.5 (21, 22.75)" with body lengths of 14.5 (16.5, 19.75)". It can be machine washed and dried flat.
