Swans Island Chatham Boatneck PDF
If you want a classic garment that can be worn by a baby boy or girl, the Chatham Boatneck from Swans Island is a good choice and can be handed down from one baby to the next, or perhaps even to the next generation. There is very little shaping on this garment so it's a straight-forward knit with just enough stitch detail up the front and back to keep the knitting interesting.
