Latte Baby Coat by Frogginette
Note: This is a full color printed pattern, not a pdf.
This cozy little coat is knit seamlessly from the top down for the hoodless version and with just one seam at the top of the hood for the hooded version (a seamless hood solution is suggested). The body is worked flat, the sleeves are worked in the round. Stitches are picked up along each side edge and hood to work woven basket stitch band in one piece. Optional pockets can be added.
