Free Knitted Baby Layette Pattern, Vintage 1950s

Bow Knot Layette :  This pattern contains directions to knit, crochet detail, the layette pictured.   This set, worked in seed stitch includes the blanket, a little pullover sweater with long sleeves and ties on the shoulders, as well as booties and an adorable pixie hat or bonnet.    This set, from Modern Knitting - 1949, was officially called Bow-Tie for the bow motif.  However, it was a pattern where you had to send off for the embroidery chart.   So, the bow-tie is not included with this pattern.  It remains, however, a nice basic baby set that could be dressed up any way you wish.   The size was not stated, however, I'd guess upwards of 6 months. 

This pattern is offered as a free download in appreciation of my customers' business.  Not a customer; just want the pattern.   No problem; but how about following me on Facebook in exchange
