Lazy Daisy All-in-One Baby Top ~ for Preemies



Lazy Daisy All-in-One Baby Top ~ Small Premature


These little baby tops are knitted top-down

 
Tips: 

·Cast off loosely on row25 for the cap sleeves – if you find this difficult – use a larger needle                              

·m1 (make 1) on row27 – I do this by knitting into the front & back of a stitch – some knitters pick up the bar of yarn from the previous row – either way will be OK

     ·yfwd – yarn forward seems to be a very UK term – you may know this as yo (yarn over) or yrn (yarn round needle). This makes the buttonholes and also the little eyelet holes on the yoke

  4. I always use your patterns for donations to the preemies and micro-preemies for our hospital. They are always so well received and I just feel good giving a quality garment for the littlest of the little. Thanks you so much for your wonderful patterns.
