Corrected baby sweater

Well, the news that we are expecting a girl led to some yarn-buying, and I already had a girly pattern in the wings: the February baby sweater . The yarn is Rowan Cashsoft DK, a lovely soft washable yarn which I am hoping will not fuzz up too much with use (?). I'm also making a hat using the gull pattern to go along with it. I'm knitting this on #2s.


However, after finishing the sweater, I realized I'd misinterpreted the pattern in the same way that many others have, and cast on too many stitches at the underarm, making the body of the sweater oddly wide and squat-looking. So, I went back and redid the bottom from the arms down, no big deal.

  • WOW Your set is beautiful. I love it all. The booties are so precious and so feminine and go with the sweater and hat nicely. Do you mind sharing what pattern you used for the little mary jane booties. I love it. Great Work

  • Well, babies are sort of oddly wide and squat looking anyway, right? :) Congratulations on your pregnancy and your daughter's beautiful mama-made knits.

  • I'm on #2 now and I did the right # of stitches but mine is still uber-wide. I'm having to rip just like you did. It's worth it, though. Look at yours. It's so sweet. And I love the accessories. :)
