The best baby pattern I have ever knitted and one of very few patterns that I have knitted more than once.

Originally planned as a "delivery knit", but of course I never managed to knit a single stitch in the hospital. (Yeah, I know, but all the books said that with the first child there would be a looong wait during the delivery, so we brought books, music, knitting and food. Then everything happened so fast that we never even had time to park the car.)
