Finished another baby set for the new Varriano baby boy, due in July!

This is a size 3 mo. The hat is from a different leaflet than the jacket.

The yarn is a superwash wool called Schoeller + Stahl Limbo Color #2529.

I traveled far and wide over this city to find the right buttons.
Came home with 3 sets. DH said these were the best. They are metal.

The hat is garter stitch...but I like the style of this hat. I make it over and over and over again. For girls I knit a big floppy flower for the front! For boys I install a button.

Thanks for all of your complimentary words! Gotta admit, I'm on a bit of a 'baby roll'. The shower isn't til August! I'm working on a Silky Tweed baby boy cabled-front pullover now. :eyes:

I do love making baby sweaters. So fast, so gratifying! The momma is a wonderful young woman. In her thirties. A very good mother. This will be their 2nd child. Audrey, is 2-ish..almost 3. She is so excited about her baby brother!

Elaine, the mother, is a very appreciative person...and the type that would handwash fine knits.

So handsome ArtLady! It reminds me of some of the heavy flannel shirts my DH has worn over the years. Very masculine. The colors look like the depths of a mountain lake and your buttons look like wooden ones, but metal is more practical. What were the other buttons like that you didn't use?

One set was gold metal, polished/shiny finish...no holes visible from the front. The kind with the metal shank in the back.

The other set was antique gold, with 2 holes visible.

I finished a cabled pullover for him two days ago...it's blocking now...and I used 4 of the antique gold buttons for the shoulder opening. I have to seam the sides and sleeves when it's dry. Should be posting it by Wednesday.

Absolutely awe-inspiring!!! Just picture perfect!!
I love the garter stitch hat.. is that pattern on the page you linked?
I more I knit, the more respect I have for simple garter stitch.. so fluffy for blankets, hats , etc..I would assume you just gage it and knit garter in the round right? then decrease as you normally would..
Thanks for sharing..

Thanks, Pat! That little garter stitch hat is a pattern I knit up over and over, to go with lots of baby jackets/patterns. The hat pattern is actually included in the leaflet with the blue/white tweed jacket.

The blue-green jacket pattern didn't include a hat.

Now this is just so cute. You rarely find great knits for a boy, but you sure did. This is just stunning. I would so knit this for my sons (if they were not 10 and 18). Great job.

Art Lady..
I was lucky enough to find the pattern for the jacket and garter stitch hat at my LYS...the directions are for making the hat on 2 needles and seaming.. can I just follow the pattern and join in the round instead?? to avoid seaming?? I am always afraid to deviate from the pattern in any way..

Also, where did you get the pattern for the "floppy flower" for the girl hat? that sounded very cute..

thanks for your help..

Floppy Flower: in Nicki Epstein's "Knitted Embellishments" book. It is awesome, and well worth the small investment.

And yes, I think you could easily knit the hat 'in the round'. Why didn't I think of that! :doh:
