Tulip Baby Sweater anyone??
The Yarn Harlot recently posted pictures of the Tulip Baby cardigan that she was working on. I fell in love with it.

After doing some "research" I found a shop in MN that sells the kit. I just ordered it today and was wondering if anyone else is interested and would like to join me in knitting one. Below is a link to the sweater and the shop that has the kit at a good price.

You can also check out the "Yarn Harlots" website and scroll down a bit and you'll see her's too. I think its just beautiful.

I saw that same sweater and fell in love with it, too! Do you happen to know any information on the sizing? I could maybe justify making it for my daughter, but she'd probably need an 18 month... I think it's beautiful!

I called the shop to check the sizing, and was told its 6-9 size, only. The pattern, not just the kit. Weird. Dont know that I've ever seen a pattern written for 1 size!

Quiltlady, do you know what skill level this pattern is rated, and is it knit on circulars or sections.

I really want to make a baby sweater, although I have no one to give it to. But this one is cute and cheery.

I am definitely interested too, but I've never made a sweater before. Would this be a good first sweater? The idea of doing my first sweater as a KAL sounds good, and a baby sized one sounds like a good place to start too.

Is it made top down, seamless on circulars?

Thanks.
Patricia

I Googled the Tulip Baby Sweater and found the answers to my questions in someone's blog. The sweater is knit top down without seaming. I'm going to try ordering a kit. I'll have a new great-niece in August. This might be the perfect Christmas present for her!

I'm sorry
I'm sorry I didn't check back at this thread after I checked it a few times.

I finished the sweater. It is very good for a beginner. IT is not made in the circular even tho I do use my circular needles for most of my knitting.

I got the kit here, they also sell just the pattern and even just the yarn as a "refill".

http://www.coldwateryarn.com/

I got my kit in TWO days after calling in my order. I am very pleased with their service.

Here is my sweater...

Its true.
To be honest, I do knit really quickly. It's when I don't understand the directions that it puts me off for a few days. I do everything fast...except lose weight.
