Old Fashioned Baby Jacket Knitting Pattern

This is a pretty and dainty old fashioned baby jacket knitting pattern. It is not that difficult but is not knitted with thick needles so will take a while to do. This pattern comes in two sizes. The main stitch used is stocking stitch and then a lace stitch around the bottom of the jacket.
