So much cuteness its hard to find words other than “awww!!”
I saw this sweater on the yarn harlot a few months ago, I thought about it. And thought about it. And thought some more. Then I just gave in and ordered the kit. I casted on a few days after I received it. (Pick up Sticks has wonderful service, I got my package less than a week from ordering it. And their in Canada!) Seeing how Kailey is now 8 months old and the sweater size is for a 6-9 month old baby. It should fit her for a few more months, by the rate she’s growing I’m not sure! With her matching hat (un-pattern here) she is just a bundle of cuteness! Its starting to get chilly here in Western Pennsylvania, I finished this at the perfect time
I did change up the pattern a little, you can see it better in this picture. Although the sweater doesn’t look quite as cute as when Kailey is wearing it.
pattern: tulip, a colorful cardigan for baby by Lindsay Pekny
yarn: Kit from pick up sticks (there was enough left over. I wonder if there was enough to knit the next size up…) dream in color classy.
needles: Knit picks options US 7 (4.50mm)
gauge: 5.5 sts/inch 6 rows/inch (my stitch gauge is larger than the patterns)
notions: zipper ordered from zipperstop (wonderful customer service, the zipper took 3 days to get here!)
- used cool fire for applied i-cord around the neck.
- didn’t knit i-cord ties
- installed a zipper (by hand, my sewing machine likes to eat things.)
- added a pom-pom
I couldn’t say no to the pom pom! Gotta run, Mike’s home and he brought *lots* of laundry with him.
