Basket Weave Newborn Set

click on the photos for a close up view

While looking for the March 2006 issue of Creative Knitting magazine I came across the Premier Issue September 2004 and remembered making this baby set. Well, I found it in a knitting bag of UFO's! All I had left to do was set the sleeves and add the button, done!
I used Bernat Softee Baby..............yes, my favorite baby acrylic.

But there were a few mistakes in the pattern and I emailed the magazine back in 2004 and they sent the corrections , you can find them here.

I made the sweater first but as I continued to knit the set, I discovered a problem with the booties pattern.

rows 14-20: Beg with a purl row, work in stockinette stitch

rows 21-24: Knit

rows 25-28: K 3, P3 rep across

rows 29-32: P3, K3 rep across

rows 33-36: Knit

I don't remember exactly why I had to change the row sequence but it worked!

In the meantime I finished these booties a few weeks ago while I had to sit and wait for someone. They are from the book 50 Baby Booties to Knit by Zoe Mellor. Page 109 Lacey Leaf Booties. I used Bernat Softee Baby ( again! ) in the color "prettiest pink", great pattern, I love the edging!

I started another new project, I'll post my progess soon!

I'm a little late in asking but where did the bunny egg cozies pattern come from? Those are just too cute!
