I love knitting baby things. They are so tiny and adorable that I just can’t help but love them. Also because they are so little, baby things are relatively quick to knit. So of course I had to knit something for one of my favorite co workers before her little one comes into the world.
And so I made this
The pattern is the Baby Jacket from Rosie’s Yarn Cellar. A truly adorable pattern, and it was even free. There is a small disadvantage to free though. At points I found the pattern a little unclear. This often happens with patterns that don’t go through the rigors of the commercial editing process. And I completely understand and certainly don’t fault the generous Rosie. After poking around on Ravelry and re-reading the pattern I was able to figure out the pattern’s intention, and am happy my results.
I used Koigu for the yarn, which is lovely to work with and made an incredibly soft sweater. Two skeins was just barely enough, and I left off the seed stitch cuffs because I had only a few yards left by that point. But the missing cuffs don’t detract too much. My only regret about choosing this particular yarn is that I realized too late that it’s hand wash only. Alas, hopefully my friend will still use it and then I can get some pictures
