Kinzie Baby Romper


My Kinzie & Little Kinzie Baby Tops are continuing to be really popular! 
They are so cute ...... so easy to knit  ...... and perfect for boys and girls!
 
If you love them already - then I am sure you will love this too -
a Little Kinzie Romper

 
 
This adorable little romper was knitted by LORNA McGOUGAN
a member of my facebook group ....and a very talented knitter.
 
She altered my original pattern to make this cute little romper.
Thank you so much Lorna   ......... I love it!

  9. Beautiful bubblesuit/onesie but there is no guage/tension listed that is concerning other than that I would say a size 6/4mm needle used with aran/worsted weight yarn should achieve 0-3 mos, even using as large as a size 7/4.5mm (http://www.yarnfwd.com/tension.html, http://www.yarnfwd.com/needleconv.html)
    I hope this information helps others and I will try after august to make one with suggested changes and see where I get please if anyone else has success upsizing I hope they post it will help many people!

      3 knit rows and 1 purl row.

  12. Hi just to let you know I make things for Angel Babies who do not make it. I used this pattern using 4ply yarn and 3.25mm needles and it turned out well. I am going to try it again with 3ply and 2.75mm for the even smaller babies. I have already done this with the little top. dress and hats and they all come out great. thank you for all the patterns you share with us. x
