Oh, this sweater. A sweet little sweater for a little baby boy who is going to join the world in August. This little sweater is made from cotton yarn, and it was a cinch to knit.
However, this ended up being one of the most frustrating things I have ever made. Why? Seams. So many seams!!
Let’s just say that I am happy to be done with this project. In the future, I will be using this pattern and this pattern for baby gifts. Also I want to take a stab at this one. But I think this boatneck pattern is going adios.
P.S. I have started knitting presents for the winter! I should have one or more of them ready for Show & Tell next week. MAKE ALL THE THINGS!!
Please please please tell me what you have been creating lately. Leave a link in the comments! Also: Have a great weekend.
Just a quick one tonight. Here’s the baby sweater I finished this week:
What I love about this adorable little sweater is the way that the neck is done. It’s similar to a onesie – the edges overlap, so it can easily be slipped over “big noggins” without being too loose during wear.
However, I think the sizing is a little wonky on this. I knit the 0 – 3 months size. My gauge is spot on; the dimensions for my finished project is exactly what it says in the directions. Unfortunately, I think this would fit a 6 – 12 months baby. It’s substantial. Maybe I’m over thinking things. I need to find a baby so I can test the size.
I used a cotton yarn for this, so that it will be easy for Mom to wash in the washing machine. I love this yarn. I am considering it for a sweater for myself. But first I need to finish the sweater that I am already making for myself. So much knitting; so little time.
Goodness, it’s late. Have a great weekend, everyone!
