Since I can't find anyone to make this wonderful bunting and hat set for my newborn to come I'm going to attempt it myself...with no knitting experience. I'm an avid sewer and a beginner at crochet but I've never took the time to learn to knit. Does any experienced knitters out there know of any pattern that resembles this bunting and hat? And also do any of you have any tips, because I'm in desperate need of them.

This is what I'm going  to attempt to make:

The bunting is knit on the outside and is fleeced lined on the inside. So is the hat. I wanted to use buttons instead of toggles if possible...well I really want a zipper but I thing the toggles/buttons give it charm.

Here is a free one from Lion Brand (need to register to access) that you could modify to look like that (just pay attention to the st counts and shaping). 

There are come free cable patterns out there that you could search through to find what you want to replace the lace with.

WHoa - as a sewer and sometimes crocheter who has tried to to learn to knit, this cable thing is tricksy - not to mention actually making a garment (although rectangles that are joined aren't too bad.)  I wondered when I saw this how hard it would be to reconstruct a regular sweater with a cable knit into this pattern, since you are an avid sewer?

Cabling is actually not that hard with the right tools.  Helpful tutorial videos here. Smiley
