Union Suit!

I have wanted to knit a Union Suit for a long time.  I did the Little Johns with the butt flap as a starting point.  Finally I have what I want! 

This little suit is knit from the ribbed neck line down, with raglan shaping, front opening with button bands, roomy arms and legs with doubled cuffs.  The backside flap covers up the back opening; if you use Elimination Communication, this could work!  You can also change the baby by opening up the flap and pulling the legs out as there are no openings on the inner legs.

Very simple design but lots of fun to knit!

I used Mirasol Cotanani in "Sunshine".  4mm needles & wooden buttons :)

Newborn, 3mon, 6mon, 12mon, 18mon, 24mon, 3yrs, 4yrs sizes.

If anyone is interested in testing the pattern, please let me know and I will email you the pattern :)

Happy Knitting!


  1. My daughter is totally interested in test knitting it.

  2. Oh, you can reach her at my address.

  3. Have loved the last two posts. I REALLY like the union suit. After the last post, I was really looking forward to seeing the finished product. I've got to have one of those...or two or three. LOL Different colors for each one. You really should start a little knit clothes business, Meg.

  4. Very very cute! Our first is due in a couple weeks and I'd love to test knit this for a winter suit. or jennietherabbit on ravelry.

  5. How cute! I would like to give this a try for my 2 year old baby :)
