Wow, that is darling! I love it. The many different stitches and elements it incorporates make it particularly cool. Would you mind telling me where you got the pattern? I am always looking for cute but not cloying baby patterns.

That's beautiful!

thanks!! the pattern is from debbie bliss's book called The Baby Knits Book. i like many patterns in it, but since it is an older book, the yarn "wool cotton" used in the book is now discontinued. however, you can used other debbie bliss's yarn.
