This cute jacket is easy to put on your little bundle of joy and looks just as good as your baby! Acadia is a wonderfully warm yarn that is sure to keep your little one comfortable.
The body of Beatrix is worked flat in one piece beginning at the back hem. Stitches are then held for the neck and the left and right fronts are worked separately. A mitred border and collar is worked on the fronts, sleeves are then worked flat and seamed.

A note from Yarn Loop-Since babies and toddlers grow so fast, it is always a good idea to make the jacket one size too big so that it lasts the entire season. Simply roll up the cuffs for the beginning of the season, and by the end, you should be unrolling them!
