Baby Ripple Onesie
An adorable onesie for a 3 or 6-month-old baby in double knitting.
I love the neat ripple stitch that Lucy from Attic24 uses on of her patterns and I really wanted to do a stripy baby romper, so I’ve combined the 2 in this cute baggy pattern (with plenty of nappy room). The opening extends down both legs to help with changing. I hate sewing up at the end of a project, so I always try to avoid seams. This design has no sewing apart from adding the buttons.
The ripple effect shows up best with a variegated yarn or in stripes. I love the colour patterning that comes out of the Baby Blossom DK by Hayfield and highly recommend it, especially with a white yarn for the yoke, cuffs & edging. I have also worked it using Innocence Bamboo Rich DK by James C Brett in stripes of pastel rainbow colours – more ends to sew in but who doesn’t love a rainbow? Working the pattern in one colour would be a more subtle effect.
