This vintage booklet, 1947, by Nell Armstrong, contains a sweet selection of baby layette items. A couple of the patterns are crochet, a couple are knitted and a couple require both. These details are shown below each picture. Here, let me know show you.

Overall, it's a delightful book. The boys helmet is uniquely different and I love the little cap with the pointed pom-pom end. I'll also have to admit that I had never heard the term 'carriage robe'. Originally, just looking at the picture, I thought is might be some type of bag to haul baby stuff around, but a quick Google search set me straight. It's a blanket !
