Needlework: Blue Baby Sweaters, Hooded Cape, Hats, Blanket etc

 This is a collection of different patterns all done in the same yarn. It includes the hooded zip sweaterwhich as I have said in the past is definitely my very favorite sweater pattern! I have been knitting this style of sweater since 1974 when I made it for our oldest child. I have since created it in many colors and sizes. It has been a popular baby gift at well.
You can find this pattern in the Columbia Minerva Book 766 "Beautiful Baby Book, Infants to Four Years" on . The pattern is "Jack Frost".
The hooded Cape and pom pom hat is from a "Baby Talk" leaflet 4 on  The cape is crocheted and can be made any length you desire.
The afghan pattern was given to me by a friend and the bootees and mittens, No. 3005, can be found in "Lovable Hand Knits, Infant to 4 Yearsvol. 30 available on

I am linking to many of these BLOG PARTIES

Such a cute baby set! I crochet, but would love to know how to knit too. I've tried, but the 2 hands thing threw me off. I'm sure these preccious gifts will be used and enjoyed with lots of love.

Oh, lovely baby togs!
I had two girls, so didn't do much in blue, but this brings back memories, and my niece just had twin boys!

What weight yarn are these? I am not sure I have the patience or nimbleness of fingers to use baby yarn; sport yarn maybe.
