This is actually three different patterns made by three different people.   They go quite nice together.

I have posted the ear flap hat previously. It can be made for a preemie, newborn, and 3 months.

The mittens in my photos are for an infant, but I also have a pattern for a larger baby I use often.

The sweater is called Lil Darlin' baby Sweater by Dot Matthews.  Is it sized 3-6 months, but if you use a smaller crochet hook and baby weight yarn, it can made smaller.
