Bestway A2434: Great vintage baby knitting pattern for matinee sets 1940s. This little set is so cute with the turn back on the bonnet and little thumb in the mittens -I remember trying to get my babies little thumbs in those- and keeping them there! But they are easy to knit omitting these. To fit 6-12 months, no chest size given. The little dash of colour was very cheerful during those days and using up little bits of wool in fair isle decoration was very sensible, this one suggest white with blue contrast, but you can do any combination. I have made the bonnet and bootees in pink cashmere with creamy white contrast - looked super! Always work a tension square to get correct tension, use modern 3ply for a smaller fit, for new born.
