The Holger Baby Set consists of a sweater and a pair of pants.

The sweater is worked from the top down. The body is worked in stockinette stitch with stripes, while the sleeves and neck edge are each worked in a different solid color. First, the back yoke is worked, then each shoulder is worked back and forth on a circular needle. The shoulders are then joined to form the front yoke. The front and back yoke are joined at the underarms to form the body, which is worked in the round on a circular needle. The sleeves are worked down from stitches that are picked up and knitted around the armholes. At the end a folded neck edge is worked from stitches that are picked up and knitted along the neckline.

The pants are worked from the top down. The back of the pants is made longer using short rows. A narrow casing for the drawstring is worked at the waist.
