On the baby lace set. I have done the sweeter with no problems but I can not figure out the bonnet. I am at the back shaping but cant get the 33 sts off and the pattern to work. Anyone that can help please I would appreciate it so much. My first grand daughter is due soon and I would love to be able to get it done for her. Thanks

This little pattern is so easy as it is done with circular needles. Ive done six in different shades of blue and green and got my local dressmaker to stich in lightweight zips on the cardies.

Where is the pattern for the booties I do not see it

Click on the link in the description above to get the knitted booties pattern. The pattern is provided on a separate page from the jacket pattern. Hope this helps! -- Editors of FaveCrafts

Yfwd means Yarn Forward which means to have the yarn in front as if to purl
