The pattern is now available for download on my website here: http://www.happyseamstress.com/knitting/baby-link-outfit-free-pattern. Happy knitting!

A friend of mine & her husband are both huge fans of Zelda (the Nintendo video game series), so for their upcoming baby shower for their first baby I knit this baby-sized Link costume.

The whole outfit:

I made a baby bottle holder to look like Link's quiver of arrows.
This is what it looks like form the front:

This is the baby bottle quiver from the back:

Brown Link-style booties:

I added leather soles to the bottoms to make them look more medieval-ey:

I also made a green baby blanket adorned with the Triforce, appliqued in felt:

I'm going to "wrap" the whole thing in this wooden chest that I stained dark brown to look like the treasure chest from the game:

And finally, this image of Link was my inspiration:

Thanks a bunch for looking, and let me know what you think!
