Finished another baby sweater (Hatchling
) for the young mother in our congregation. Baby girl due in January! It's their first baby!
The sweater is 9" from shoulder to hem. Sleeves 5.5". Chest width at underarm: 7.5"
I'm pretty sure this will fit the baby from day one. I knit the very smallest size.
Used only 225 yards!
Half the skein. Yup, the buttons cost more than the yarn on this one!
This was a very easy pattern. It was knit in one piece up to the armpits, then the upper body sections were knit independently. The buttonbands were "knit in" as you go.
My Ravelry notes.
