Knitted Baby Jacket

I went to re-check my notes/diagram for Prissy's vest (shown in this post), but then decided that the first knitting pattern I posted should perhaps be a little easier. Also, I wanted to test an idea I had for a top-down shirt/jacket with no seams to worry about. The result after the second attempt came out okay; here is Sandy Babblebrook wearing the second test jacket:

These jackets were knit with US size 000, or 1.5mm, knitting needles. I originally knit them with a size 8 perle cotton (DMC brand), since I already had a gauge swatch. Afterword, I also knit one up in a size 20 cotton cordonnet or crochet thread (specifically, Handy Hands Flora); I think it may be slightly larger, but not enough to be a problem. The perle 8 cotton is the purple jacket below, and the size 20 cordonnet is the blue jacket.

The instructions are both charted and written out. The pdf of the pattern, shown below, can be downloaded via GoogleDocs or Ravelry.
