Oh, those are so cute! I love both the panels. And your knitting is exquisite. Nicely done.

What an adorable baby sweater! I think your idea to create an additional front panel is brilliant!

I've got a stack of baby books sitting on my sofa right now because I've been hunting for a baby pattern that uses worsted! Yay! I hope you won't mind...I'm going to knit the Presto Chango, too!

And it's FREE HERE!

If it turns out to be a boy, I can whip up a panel w/ say, a dog or a sailboat, star, etc., if it's a girl the hearts are good and you could do a kitty or flowers. An old lady from Greece swore my friend is having a girl; we'll know soon enough!

Oh yes, go for it! I think it's such a practical sweater because you can change the panel, also easy to get baby into. Some other knitters on Ravelry made 2 or 3 extra panels. The lady who wrote the pattern won a contest at my LYS, Jimmy Beans Wool in Reno. Have fun, you should be able to knit it pretty quickly.

It's lovely! As a mom of a baby, who was born in winter and was spitting up a lot, I second the brilliance of interchangable panels.

That worked out so well! The sweater is adorable and the two panels are such a clever idea. Love the strong color, too.
