Tiny Bunting

This tiny bunting (for a baby less than 1 pound) is based on this pattern. I knit it with size 5 needles and Caron Simply Soft Baby Sport.

Instead of garter stitch, I used stockinette with a garter stitch border.

I lined it with a piece of flannel, left over from blanket making, sewing it on by hand to avoid flattening the stitches.

The whole process took about 3 hours. Two hours to knit and one hour to add the lining. I'm hoping to make several of these for The Preemie Project. The flower embellishments on the front are purely decorative.

  2. That bunting is so sweet. I can only imagine how nice it must be on the inside with the added lining, a very loving touch. the little Santa hat and booties are the cutest thing I have seen since the last time you showed us baby things! You keep finding the neatest patterns!

  3. That is just beautiful! I love the flannal scrap you choose. It's perfect! I actually used 3 of your blankets as bereavement blankets. The little flowers are the front are so sweet. Those kinds of loving touches make your items so special. Beautiful work!

  5. Oh, Tracy, your work is always so wonderful! The bunting is going to be so special to some grieving family. Thank you for doing so much for TPP. I haven't been able to do much baby stuff myself lately.
