This is so cute. I love making baby items. It started when my grand daughter was born and just bloomed into making things for family and friends. This is such an easy design that I have to try it. Plus by changing colors you can turn it into a holiday outfit.

This set is adorable. I know one special new mother who would love this. Also I do charity knitting and there is no reason why some little one can't look special. This will be perfect. The instructions looks simple to follow. I usually don't like double pointed needles but I think they are perfect for this set. Thank you.

What a beautiful set! I would like to knit it for a newborn. How should I adjust the pattern for 0-3 months size?

The yarn for this 06129, Morning Glory seems to have been discontinued by Bernat. I found some on Ebay but the colors look different. Do you know where I can order the same florals color as in this picture? thank you, Pam
