There will always be people who say mean words because you are different and sometimes their minds cannot be changed.

But there are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Thank you for all the nice comments. This outfit could easily be made for different sizes by increasing or decreasing the number of stitches or by changing hook size. You could also use a different type of yarn if desired. Let me know if you have any problems with the pattern.:)

I saw your thread on the Babies section and came here to look at the pattern. I'm so glad I did - you didn't say there would be cute as pie pictures of her modelling the clothes! Such a pretty set and a cute baby to match.
