Stash busting again! But for Tiny this time. I had two hanks of Berroco Ultra Alpaca (colourway 6236 Chianti) in my stash that, if I were to have a girl, was to become the Tiered Coat from Lisa Chemery. But, as you know, we had a little boy in the form of Tiny Tuna:
So plans changed!
I just sort of improvised the pattern based on his measurements at about 2 months and added 4” to make it a 6 month size chest. Because he gets really hot, I made 3/4 length sleeves that I can put a long-sleeved onsie underneath if he needs it as the fall progresses.
The hood was picked up along the cast on edge and I just knit straight for 16”, then cast off. Folding the hood in half, I just seamed it up. Simple.
I was totally and completely stuck about the closure. I didn’t do any buttonholes while I was knitting, so I ended up using punch snaps. I LOVE how they turned out – I will definitely be doing this again.
I have never been a big fan of baby knits so in all my time knitting, favouriting and generally perusing Ravelry, I have very few baby sweaters picked out that I like/love/want to knit. So, a question for you, lovely readers: What is your favourite baby sweater? It doesn’t matter if you’ve actually knit it or not, I’m just curious about what’s out there! and I love hearing from you about what inspires you :)
