This sweet design is very popular. 

 
I originally wrote this pattern for a new baby called Rosie.
 
Her mum had lots of newborn baby clothes and asked for a bigger size - so I made it to fit a 6 - 9 months baby -
 
Rosie is now fast approaching 2 years old! Where does the time go ......?
 
The original pattern used chunky yarn - you will find the link here ~
