I finished another gift for the baby shower. I made this in a 9-12 month size as well as the hat. I always like to buy or make bigger baby gifts as most people buy newborn stuff.

I love the green color and may make something else with it down the road.

It is Knitpicks Shine worsted in apple green and cream. I really didn't like the cotton blend as I set the color in vinegar water then washed it and it pilled pretty badly.

That is a cute set, but it is too bad about the pilling.

This is the pattern for the sweater. It has matching booties I didn't want to do.

I just winged the hat, cast on 90 st on a size 6 circ, knit in the round for about 5 inches, started my decrease at 6, k2tog, then a row of knit, then 5, k2tog, then a row of knit, etc. I changed to dpns around the 4 row dec I think At the 3 knit 2 tog I started the green and kept it throughout. When I had just 6 stitches on the 3 needles, I bound off 2 then did a few rows of I-cord for the top.

You may not have any trouble with it. It might be because I didn't wash anything with it that it did that, who knows? It knits up well and is nice and stretchy so keep that in mind.
