Now this is an FO that I did not think I'd be sharing that soon as I knit a size up (6-12 months) for the upcoming fall and winter. However, my baby is growing so fast that she can start wearing it already. Alright, the sleeves are still a bit long and it is somewhat loose-fitting, but that is ok. I actually think that once she is 6 months old, I might need to extend the body length. There's still a bit of the Shibui Sock skein left, I might get another inch out of it.
CO: March 16th, 2011
BO: March 19th, 2011
Pattern: Sock yarn sweater
Yarn: Almost 2 full skeins of Shibui Sock, 100% merino; colour spectrum, nr 51301. I loved knitting with this yarn, so nicely spun and the colours are amazing. Yes, there is some pooling across the chest and on the sleeves, but I actually do not mind that at all - it makes this little sweater just the more cuter.
Needles: 3.5mm circulars and dpns for sleeves
Size: 6-12 months
Mods/notes: CO 80 sts, then p 1 row, k 1 row, on the next row increased to 98 sts. Knit the sleeves longer than what the pattern called for and decreased every few rows to 42 sts.
