This sweet little pinafore is easier than it looks. It is simple stockinette but the yarn, Baby Blossom DK, is dyed to create the look of gradated stripes separated by bands of Fair Isle-style flowers and leaves--no stranding or following charts! The pinafore is knit flat in one piece, with a seam at the lower back and buttons closing the upper back. The body is stockinette with garter stitch edgings. The sweater is sized for infant to 2 years. Finished chest measurements are 18.5 (21, 22.75)" with lengths of 12.5 (14, 16.5)". Baby Blossom DK is an acrylic/nylon blend that can be machine washed and dried flat.
