Garter Stitch Baby Sacque from Good Housekeeping Complete Book of Needlecraft 1970ish
I've had this book since high school and thought I would make this sweet little baby sweater. My gauge is a bit larger than the pattern, hence a larger sweater, but that is okay with me.
The pattern does not really specify a yarn, just "x ball sof baby wool".

I used Dale of Norway Baby Ull (purple) and Plymouth Dreambaby Dk (white) and a size 7 needle (size the pattern calls for).


Still needs 3 tiny buttons on the yoke.
