FO: Baby sweater
This is the Compass Sweater I made for a sweet little great-niece. Yarn is Bernat Baby Sport. Supposed to fit 9-12 months. There are cables on each shoulder and one more on back.

Closer view if you click on the photo.

Nice! If I had that when my daughter was a baby, I'd have her wear it every day I could... then again, the color would really set off her blue eyes...

A cute little sweater. I like the cables on the shoulder and down the front. Good job and a nice color.

THAT is the cutest baby girl pullover I've ever seen! So feminine, yet durable!

Where did you find the pattern?
I put COMPASS SWEATER into the Rav pattern search...nothing came up.

I fell in love with this little sweater at the Deep South Fibers site, which is where I bought the hard copy. I did not realize the pattern was on Ravelry until I made some noise to Deep South Fibers about a mistake in the pattern. The designer was contacted and he, in turn, contacted me. He said I was the only one who had problems with the pattern...don't think so, but certainly the only one who made noise about it. He graciously apologized after reviewing the pattern and correcting it.

The designer is Michael Brian McNorrill, aka Grannycore, and his pattern for the Compass Sweater can be downloaded on Ravelry. I entered compass sweater (all lower case) in the pattern search box and the sweater comes up in blue on the left side of the screen.

I didn't follow the pattern exactly because for some reason I was getting holes with the M1L or M1R and used the old reliable K1fb instead and no purl stitch at each side of the cables.

There is not one seam in this sweater...just ends to tie off when the sweater is done. I plan on making it again.
