Yes, in my series of ongoing posts this year I have more baby knits! These are already wrapped and sent to friends who are due at the beginning of June.
One of Wes’s coworkers is expecting his first son in early June. Since I’ve started knitting a little something for the office babies I knew I wanted to knit a sweater. I went trolling through Ravelry patterns and found a cute stripey sweater. A quick inventory of the stash, a dash through my the favorite etsy button supplier’s store and I was good to go!
Pattern: Little Coffee Bean Cardigan
Yarn: Berroco Vintage in Dark Denim & Chana Dal
Needles: US 8
The verdict: Cute cute cute! I need to remember this pattern – it was a simple knit, worked up quickly and is adorable!
June baby number two is due to a friend in Seattle. I got the idea while perusing buttons when I found some super cute sailor ones. Daddy loves sailing and has his own sailboat, so it’s a good bet the little guy will be going out on a boat sooner or later. I made use of my stash again, finding this luscious navy yarn and an adorable little cardigan pattern with a shawl collar and voila!
The Pattern: Baby Sophisticate
The Yarn: The Plucky Knitter, 80/20 Superwash merino nylon, Cinzia Zicardi
The Needles: US 8
The Verdict: Love this one too! I held fingering weight yarn doubled for this one and so again, it knit up quickly. I love those baby knits for instant gratification! I’m so pleased with how this turned out and I hope mommy and daddy love it too.
Now let’s get to work on gifts for the August babies!
