4 baby sweaters for Stitches from the Heart
My LYS is supporting Stitches from the Heart. For each sweater we donate we get one chance in a drawing for a $100 GC. So here's my first sweaters.

Two of them were made a long time ago and two are new ones. Photos are clickable. Patterns are linked below.

This is the newest one. I used the free pattern from Knitting Pure and Simple and added the collar instead of the hood. I also added buttons with crocheted loops instead of ties so it would look more boyish.

This one is so cute! I love this pattern! The buttons are little hearts.

The first four. I'm working on the 5th now.

Darker blue sweater
Striped boyish sweater
Light blue girly sweater
Pink Haiku Sweater

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Your sweaters look adorable, Jan. The stripped one is very collegian sporty and the second sweater is a nice "go-to" pattern for an infant charity sweater, pretty and quick.

Each one is cuter than the next! I have a Stitches from the Heart not far from me in Santa Monica and need to get cracking on items for them. You've inspired me!
