Claire Lace Leaf Onesie and Baby Bonnet

Claire Lace Onesie and Bonnet

This little number came about after seeing a similar romper. I really liked the way the top edge became a sweetheart type of neckline. But I wanted to add an element to make it even more special.

The leaf motif in knitting has been around for ages and has been used in a million different ways. I think what makes it so popular is that it’s fairly easy to create in knitting, but it makes a definite statement. It’s a unique embellishment that lends a simple beauty taken from nature to the finished baby romper.

I decided to use only one leaf in this lace baby onesie, because I wanted it to remain simple, yet elegant. I also decided to design the baby bonnet with the lace leaf a little to the side. It kind of reminds me of the lovely hats that used to be worn off to the side a bit. Very stylish!

The Mint color shown above is my favorite for this baby lace onesie, maybe because it is green like a leaf, but it can be made in many different colors. Below, I show it in Sky Blue, and I’ve done it in a cheery Sunshine Yellow, too.
