FO: Hooded Fisherman Rib baby girl jacket
A young woman in our congregation is having a baby girl in January! Oh wheeee!
Love knitting for babies, especially baby girls.

Here is the first installment of a series of sweaters that I'm going to knit for her baby girl.
I'm knitting the smallest sizes possible cuz I hope the baby can wear it this winter 2014.





Here is a link to my Ravelry notebook for this project.

The pattern isn't free. It's from a McCall's 1973 vintage booklet, and I bought mine on Ebay a while back.
A used booklet is available on Ebay today. Click here for that.
There are 65 patterns in this soft cover book. It seems to be $10.95. I paid $25 for mine!



I used this yarn. I didn't want to burden the mother with handwashing.
She has two other children, plus she works their family pizza truck. Busy woman!

Oh, that's so darling! And I agree, you have to use yarn that is easy to wash. Not too many new moms can take the time to hand wash things! It's also nice to know the baby's sex so you can pick the right colors.

How adorable! i love the hood and the fisherman knit is so soft and cushie. That's so thoughtful of you to knit a series in increasing sizes too. The family will be thrilled.

I knit this little hoodie back in 1977 for my little girl who's now 36 years old!

I knit two actually: one in peppermint candy pink, and another one in lipstick red! I loved them!

My girlfriend's sister have me a terrible quality photocopy of the pattern, and parts were missing, but I muddled thru it. I was elated to find the original book on Ebay, and it's near mint condition.
