This free knitting pattern is ideal for Level 2 - Confident Beginner Knitters

Designed by the talented team over at Lion Brand, this colorful kiddie set is the cozy outfit that’s perfect for enjoying the cool air outdoors with your darling.

The pattern comes in 3 different sizes that fit babies 6-9 months and toddlers 1-2 years old.

For the sweater, the finished chest measurement ranges from 21.5 inches to 24 inches and length measurement from 12 inches to 13 inches. In metric units, the finished chest ranges from 54.5 cm to 61cm and the length ranges from 30.5 cm to 33 cm.

On the other hand, the finished hat’s circumference ranges from 16 inches to 18.5 inches. That’s about 40.5 cm to 47.5 cm in metric units.

This child’s warm set was made using the discontinued landscapes yarn, however, you can easily substitute any no. 6 or super bulky acrylic or wool yarns.

Moreover, you will also need a size US 10 knitting needle. That’s 6 mm if you prefer to use the metric system.

Working the pattern requires you to make the k2tog or knitting 2 stitches together, which is a basic decrease technique that slants to the right.

If you like to learn how to make the k2tog, you can check out our fully illustrated tutorial for this technique. You can find the tutorial here: Basic Right-Slanting Decrease (K2tog).
