CrissCross Matinee Coat

A sweet and cozy crisscross matinee coat, this cute baby sweater can be crocheted up
in no time at all, leave open or fasten with the three small buttons on the yoke, made
with easy stitches of sc and cross stitch. Can be made into a 2  part set by pairing with my
Baby scatch mitts pattern or if you want to make a 3 part set add my crisscross bonnet
pattern, will make a lovely set to give as a gift.
