My brother and sister-in-law are having a baby girl this month (they currently have 3 boys), so I made a small gift. The sweater is from the pattern “Helena”, but I made it with buttons instead of a tie closure. The booties are “Furrylicious Baby Boot” pattern. These are actually the 3rd pair I’ve made from this pattern. Super cute and fairly easy to make. And the bonnet is “Béguin de Printemps”. I liked how the picot edging matched the sweater. Hope my new niece likes it!
I recently finished knitting the Pembroke Vest. I made some changes. I knit it with the 2 year old size for the width, but the 4 year old size for the length (my son is very skinny for his height). I also changed the middle cable pattern to the one from THIS PATTERN. Both of those are free patterns, if you are interested in knitting them.
It was a lot of work, but worth it. My son loves it, and wore it to church the day after I finished it.
