Baby sleeveless jacket free pattern. Size 0-3 months.

I know, it's getting worm out there, but still some little babies might need a sleeveless jacket for more windy days. Plus the weather in England is changing every day and you never know what it;s gonna be like tomorrow. So here I made a little sleeveless jacket for a 0-3 months old baby and decided to share a pattern for those who want to make one for their babies.

I used some aran weight yarn from my stash, a bit more than 50 grams. I think it was Filati, some wool and acrilic mix, but I'm really not shure. Anyway, you will need a bit more than 50g of aran veight yarn, 5mm needles, 5 buttons and a tapestry needle to complete this project. It is supereasy!
