Thanks everyone!! Baby things are my favorite, so the steeked baby sweater seemed like just the ticket. I've never seen one done before, but doubt I am the first one to do it. LOL

Great, now I have to research what a "steek" is...

That sweater is GORGEOUS!

Dear Msoebel,

There is an excellent thread that is in the "How to questions" folder, that Ingrid started (it is in the top section---the sticky threads) about steeks. You find a lot more if you research, but Ingrid's is about the best for general information, with the added feature that you can tap her expertise by asking her questions. :-) Check it out.

Steeks, the realm of the fearless. My attempt at cutting and putting back together knitting was not nearly as successful as yours. Congratulations! It will be a lucky baby.

Lovely job! I have not attempted steeking yet. Great idea to try it on a baby sweater!

Nice little sweater. I haven't had the courage to do any steeking so good for you!
