Alpaca February Baby Sweater



Hi Folks,
At last I have got around to posting my February Baby Sweater knit for my 20 month old daughter. It's made up of Blue Sky Alpaca Sportweight leftovers from a couple of other projects, knit on a 4.5mm needle to be loose, - more details on my blog www.didyoumakeityourself.com - didn't have a clue what size it would turn out but new that she would grow into it sooner or later! I did the yolk in stocking stitch because I'm not the biggest fan of garter, and I left out the buttonholes because I imagined it pinned with something sparkly and or big. As you can see there is ample room in it, Betsy has worn it a couple of times pinned over with a brooch and I guess it might last her a couple of years because it's loose and easy going on the size and fasten front. Must do one for myself next.

  • Not sure if the sweater is cuter or your daughter posing in the sweater! I have one on the needles for a friend who is due in November...

  • You did such a great job! Plus, I love that you're using a brooch for the fastener. Your daughter looks adorable in the sweater.....but I'm sure she looks adorable in anything.

  • Love the sweater and gorgeous girl. I love that you did what YOU wanted with it. It is good to make sweaters large, otherwise they grow out of them so fast you can't keep up with them.

  • Wow -- this is my favorite interpretation of this sweater -- simply gorgeous! I'm inspired to knit another one for my 17 month old who has just grown out of the infant one I knit him.
