Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie!
This morning I’m sharing a pretty vintage baby bunting and hood pattern to knit. It has wide ribbing with a satin ribbon edge and a zipper in the front.
Just in time to make for holiday gift giving or bazaars, this would be wonderful to keep a little one warm in the upcoming cold winter months.
From the Star Baby Book No. 111, it uses 19 ounces of the American Thread Company’s “DAWN” Knitting Worsted which was 100% wool or “DAWN” Nylon Worsted.
These yarns are no longer available but any modern knitting yarn that is smooth and a medium width can be substituted. You must match a gauge of 6 sts = 1 inch with a pair of No. 6 Knitting needles.
Here is the PDF to download and save:
The pattern is in PDF format so to download it you’ll need the Adobe Reader software on your computer. Most computers come with it, but it is free and can be found here.
Download Instructions: Right-Click the link and select either “save target as” or “save link as” depending on what browser you are using or simply click on it and save or print.
