Additional Materials
1 yard 3/8 inch (1 cm) ribbon, color of your choice sewing needle and thread
GAUGE:
22 sts x 28 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in stockinette stitch with A When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

NOTES:
Ruffles yarn requires a special, yet simple, technique.

The loops are formed by inserting the needle into this tape-fabric yarn.

FINISHING:
Sew up side seams, weave in ends.

Using sewing needle and thread, secure the ribbon so it cannot come loose.



Note: If baby is old enough to enjoy untying things, it may be prudent to put the bow in the back where it will be difficult to reach.

Optional Leg Cuff:
Using 5 double-pointed needles, pick up 60 stitches around the leg openings.

With A, k2, p1 around for 8 rows.

Bind off very loosely so the cuff will stretch comfortably, weave in ends.



Optional Leg Ruffle:
Using 5 double-pointed needles, pick up 60 stitches around the leg openings.

With B, knit around for 2 rows.

Bind off very loosely so the cuff will stretch comfortably, weave in ends.
