Premature Baby Crochet Baby Jacket

There are loads of little crochet baby jackets available but I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for.
 
I wanted instructions for a sleeveless premature baby jacket - in DK weight yarn - and written in UK terminology.
 
After lots of looking …..it seemed easier in the end to write my own !
(although I must say that there are many similar patterns freely available).
Anyway this is my version.
