Cotton Candy Knit Hooded Jacket and Booties

Worked in one piece, this hooded jacket is a joy to make. Sizes range from newborn to one year. The loopiness of the design eliminates the need for buttonholes and allows a button to easily push through the fabric. The booties are sized to fit newborns to 6-month-olds and have twisted-yarn lace accents.
Getting Started

Skill Level: Easy

Sizes: Newborn (SIX MONTHS, 12 months); Booties are for size Newborn and 6 months only.
Note: Sizes for most Better Homes and Gardens knitting projects are noted in the instructions. When one size is written out in capitalized letters, it is to note the size of the modeled garment. The instructions are written for the smallest size with changes for larger sizes in parentheses. When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes. For ease in working, before you begin, circle the numbers pertaining to the size you are knitting or crocheting.
