Can you believe the FOs? I can’t. After such a long bout of apathy during the first trimester (and half of the second really), I feel like a knitting machine.
This sweater is similar to the Baby Surprise Jacket, though much more obvious in its construction. It was quick and fun – love garter stitch. I thought I could finish it with only one ball of fingering weight yarn, but alas two were needed.
Yarn: Knit Picks Gloss, Porcini, 1-1/2 skeins.
Needles: US 3 (3.25mm) circs for 22 sts = 4″ in garter st
Finished Measurements: Chest: 17”, Length: 8”
Mods: Hard to modify such a loose pattern. I did increase the sleeve length by a couple inches as suggested in the magazine article and attached two buttons with a crochet chain for fastening the sweater. I didn’t bother with trimming the edges as the cable cast on is lovely on its own and I slipped the first stitch of every row kwise wyib for a nice edge along the wrap edges.
