The Last of the Baby Knits

I think I have come to the end of the baby knits, at least for now. This little boy sweater is for my friend in Ontario, who had a little boy this spring. I'm hoping this sweater will see a lot of action in the cold winter there.

Pattern Specs:

  1. Based on Sally Melville's Baby Rainbow Jacket, from Knitting Experience Book 3: Color.
  2. I say based, because I used a different slip stitch than she did, although I followed her measurements to get the sizing. I also made the sleeves solid colour with just a stripe, rather than continuing all the colour work.
  3. Yarn was Sari cotton, bought on sale at Fun Knits during our field trip. Although the yarn is a little splitty, I love the colours it comes in and it was easy to knit with overall.
  4. Time to knit, about three weeks. I had to go back for one more ball of cotton, to finish the button band.
  5. The buttons are from my very large button stash.

I enjoyed this knit, and I think it is very stylish for a little baby boy (six-nine month size).

Now back to adult knitting!
