February Baby Sweater


I finally finished the gull pattern baby sweater! When I started I thought it would be a two week project, but it turned into months. Cascade Sierra (cotton/wool blend) is not that fun to work on my blunt addis, but when I switched to bamboo it went a lot faster. I think it turned out to be a 9 mo. size.

Yarn: Cascade Sierra--2 balls (I lost the label)
Size: 9 mo
Needles: 6

By the time I remembered to put in the buttonholes, I was too far along to go back, so I crocheted a tie at the front. I hope the mom of the new baby likes it!

  • Beautiful work, and I love the cranberry red you chose. EZ would be proud of you for selecting such a bold dark color.

  • Thank you for your nice comments! The mom of the baby was very happy to receive a hand-knit sweater (she's a crocheter)

  • Such a beautiful color; babies look gorgeous in strong colors, I think. I can't wait to make one for my little girl!

  • Looks great! Beautiful job. I am curious, did you follow the pattern in the Almanac exactly to get the 9 month size? I'm just wondering if this sweater will be big enough to fit my one year old.

    Thanks!
