Christmas Baby Surprise Jacket
The pattern is written for yarn at 6 stitches per inch, and the chenille knits up about 2.5 stitches to the inch. So I just figured out that it's about 42% of the pattern, and made all of the numbers 42% of what she has in the book. It worked very well, which was fortunate, as I had no time for errors.
I got the measurements for the bonnet from a baby pattern book and then just sort of made something up. It only took about an hour to make, and I think it looks pretty cute. I put an i-cord edge on every edge I could find, a la EZ, as well as a twisted cord for the bonnet ties.
