My rock-star sister-in-law is pregnant and will be delivering her fourth little angel in November. To that wee one destined to be the precocious little sister of three other incredibly precocious little girls, I dedicate this ensemble. Possibly the only item she will own for many years that is not a hand-me-down.
It’s my opinion that babies are precious, and innocent and deserve to have adults jump through hoops for them. Hence, this baby sweater. It’s my first crochet garment, and it’s a little awesome, if I do say so myself. But then, baby things are always pretty awesome.
This project is the result of yet another Craftsy.com class called “Beyond Rectangles” by Linda Permann. Depending on your skill level, some of the instruction was a little basic, but I learned quite a bit and find that I just like guided projects. It’s reassuring to have a reference point for those little details in a pattern that confuse or befuddle. The base pattern for the sweater is simple. Which made it perfect because I like simple.
The cap was not a part of the class. I made one based on a Bernat pattern, didn’t like it, and ended up just winging it and adding the same edging that I used on the sweater. I like it much better. It’s simple. Simple and Sweet.
Sweet and Simple. Simple and Sweet. I like this sweater. I think that it’s neat…:)
