Hooded Baby Jumpsuit

Today I published my newest knitting pattern on Ravelry and on Craftsy. It's called Hooded Jumpsuit.  It's one piece, is seamless, has raglan sleeves and is made with worsted weight yarn so it's suitable for cool weather. It's knit top-down from the ribbed neckband and the front buttoned bands go to within 1" of the crotch to make it easy to put on and take off your baby.

Stitches for the hood are picked up from the neckband and once the hood is knitted, stitches are grafted together at the top of the head so there are no seams.

The hood, body and legs are knit in stockinette stitch, while the sleeves are knit in a mock rib stitch to add texture and interest. The neckband, sleeve cuffs and leg cuffs are worked in ribbing.
I love the red lady bug buttons on the blue jumpsuit and the little car buttons on the brown jumpsuit. :)
