This comfy little bunting has a button-front closure and a lapped back opening to allow for seatbelts in car seats or strollers. Perfect for an advanced beginner, this baby bunting is the best way to keep your little one cozy and secure during trips and doubles as a wrap for chilly nights.
It is knit from the top down in stockinette with raglan shaping. Knitting is done back and forth to the bottom of the button band opening, then it is joined into the round to complete the lower section. Stitches are picked up at underarm and sleeves are knit in the round down to the cuff. Contrast stripes at the yoke and near the bottom add interest. Garter stitch trim for collar, cuffs, button band, lapped seat belt opening and bottom edge are also in the contrast color. Button band, collar and lapped opening in back are picked up and knit in garter stitch after garment is finished. An I-cord is laced through eyelets in the bottom border to tie the bunting up and keep baby snug.
