I have been dying to make this sweater for my baby, but the seaming was just so intimidating. My first sweater was a reglan sweater with short sleeves…no problem…I made that about a year and a half ago. Well, I decided to cast on and I did it! I got the pattern from www.lionbrand.com (it’s the kimono sweater–wrap style–under the baby knit patterns). Not too bad I think. I’m going to be knitting this sweater, along with a hat and booties to give as gifts to 2 friends having babies in the spring The first picture is of the sweater, the second is of the baby wearing the sweater.
I’m also known for modifying patterns, so the next sweater I’m making, I’m going to do about 4 rows of garter stitch to prevent the rolling on the bottom. I’d also like to add a fur trim to it, so that will be easier if the hem is not rolled. I’m also going to add a couple more rows to the sleeves.
