Sirdar Book 280 - Early Arrivals is a collection of garments specially created for baby including premature sizes from 10 inches. Featured here are a matinée coat with a delicate lacy stitch pattern in double knitting weight yarn; a set made up of an all-in-one with 'scratch mitts,' that can be folded back to create a conventional cuff, a hooded jacket, a cardigan with a collar, and leggings worked in 4-ply weight yarn; and, cabled cardigans with matching trousers, hat, mittens and socks in 4-ply weight yarn.

From the publisher:

"An adorable collection of designs which has been created to meet the special needs of the premature baby. Sizes start from just 10 inches.

Throughout the collection, particular attention has been given to such practical details as easy penings and fastenings. The choice of Sirdar Snuggly baby yarns ensures that your garments will be supersoft to the touch -- perfect for a baby's delicate skin, yet with the bonus of easy care machine wash, tumble dry performance.

You will find everything you need for the premature baby in the New Arrivals collection. Beautifully co-ordinating sets include shawls, matinee coats, hooded jackets, all-in-ones and the finishing touches of bootees and mitts.

The emphasis is on 4-Ply knitting with DK designs also included. In all cases, simple stocking stitch has been used together with easy lace stitches and textures."
