For my baby
Look what I was able to knit up in 2 days! Yes, the long-awaited sweater for Owen.
Pattern: Bulky sweater from Knitting for Two
Yarn: Plymouth Encore Chunky in a blue and brown
Needles: size 11 got the correct gauge
Mods: The pattern sizes only went up to 6-12 months so I made it a bit bigger so it would be more of a 9 to 15 month size so Owen should be able to wear it for the entire winter.
This is the same sweater I made in June for a friend's baby. I originally wanted to make two identical blue sweaters, but baby Noah's took up more than its allotted yarn. I returned to the store I got the yarn at, but they didn't have any more blue so I got brown. I really like the brown stripe and the cuffs! Luckily I didn't make the stripe one row narrower because I had maybe half an inch of blue left when I bound off the second sleeve. Phew.
Here's Owen modeling the sweater:
Too cute! And here's an action shot:
Now to put it away until winter!
