View Full Version : Cardigan and hat for baby boy

11-13-2007, 12:21 AM
Here is a little sweater I designed and knit for a new baby boy in our church. It is made of Wool-Ease. http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q220/JoodieKadoodie/Sweaters/PinstripeCardigan.jpg

Then I made a little hat to go with it. This is basically the same design as the two little sweaters I am showing in another thread, the one I designed for my knitting class gals. But I added a rolled edge and contrast bands and pinstripes. http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q220/JoodieKadoodie/Sweaters/PinstripeCardiganandHat.jpg

And here is a detail of the neck edge and the front. http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q220/JoodieKadoodie/Sweaters/rolledneckandbands.jpg

I am having so much fun inventing simple baby sweaters since I figured out I could do it. :woot:

Thanks everyone! Now that it is done and pictures taken I may take it over and give it to the little guy today. They only live a few blocks away.

The color of the yarn shows up best in the second picture where DH used a flash.

Thats so cute, wow your good, i can never knit that, its your design??

Yes, it is my own idea. I have been knitting for over 40 years and a lot during the last 20 or so. I am just starting to invent sweaters on my own. So I am not that great. Some of the young knitters are doing it right away, they are the really talented ones. I recommend not waiting as long as I have to venture out and try it. :thumbsup: It is really fun.
