baby sweater

I'm using Gloss dk in red and size 8 needles (my new Denise.)

It's for my 7 week old dd. She is almost 13lbs and has an 18" chest, So I upsized the needles. My friend is enabling/helping me. My first sweater.

I'm on row 9...

Just keep at it you will be fine. We look forward to seeing your finished sweater as the pattern is really cute.

Baby sweaters are the best to start with. Size is flexible and you get to learn basic construction. Enjoy!

Cute sweater! The trim looks just perfect for a little girl. Are you going to post your WIP?

Finished a couple more rows. I'm mega fretting as I'm not sure doing it properly - I know I missed a YO on the collar. It's the "bobble" bit I'm worried about. I assumed the "bar 1" here = M1 so I did M1 how I always do, lift with right needle, twist ( I think ) put on left needle, knit the back of the stitch. (I do it this way to avoid a hole.) The other inc is kfb which I do the usual way.
