GEORGIE Baby Jacket & Hat

I know that many of you loved knitting my Danika baby jacket - but that quite a few of you found the stitch pattern more difficult than you were able to do right now, and gave up in disgust!
So I have just written a similar baby jacket pattern with a little collar -
using a simpler stitch for beginners and improvers.  Happy knitting x
