Garter Stitch Ridge Baby Set



This cute little baby hat, mittens & booties set is just perfect for a newborn baby gift.
 
They are quick & simple to make - and a great way to use small amounts of yarn.
All three only require around 46g in total!
 
 Knit them in traditional pastels or in modern bright colours.

  2. I'm confused about what to do next in the pattern. After row 20 it says to repeat from ** to ** twice more. I don't see that in the pattern. Thanks.

    1. Hello Mary. You are quite correct - I missed off the second ** from the hat instructions. Sorry for the confusion.
      You should repeat the 15th - 20th rows twice more. Thank you for letting me know. Happy knitting. M

  12. I made this baby set for a baby shower and am very happy with the end product. I am an experienced knitter and have taught knitting in adult education since I was 16 years old. Now I am 60 years old am enjoying my knitting habit more as my medical practice winds down. I made the set in a teal and purple variegated yarn as the contrast color and a matching purple as the main color. I did a different technique to bottom of booties. Instead of straight seam in foot made it a " T" shape at toes to give more room in toe box. Am now using a raglan sweater pattern to match in same colors and contrast garder stitches to match hat set. Love your pattern and hope to use more in the future. Thanks, Barb
