Baby Sweaters

Last Year in January my little niece Morgan was born. I wasn't doing much blogging last year so I am finally posting about the little baby sweaters that I knit for her when she was born. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law decided not to find out the gender of their baby before she was born so I needed to find some gender neutral knits in gender neutral colors. I decided on these two:

Pattern: Antler by tincanknits

Yarn: Cascade 220 in Off White

Needles: Size US 6 and 8

This was such a fun and easy sweater to knit for a newborn baby. And it could definitely pass for either a boy or a girl. It comes in size ranges up to adult so I definitely have plans to knit it for my boys as well.

Pattern: Puerperium Cardigan by Kelly Brooker

Yarn: Cascade 220 Sport in Ginseng

Needles: Size US 6

I knit this little sweater for my twins when they were born and just loved it so much - I had to knit it again. I chose a pretty neutral colored yarn and then when I found out that the baby was a girl I added little pink buttons to make it more girly. The yarn was absolutely lovely. I had never used the Cascade 220 Sport before and it was very soft and it comes in amazing colors that the worsted weight doesn't come in. I hope my sister-in-law enjoyed dressing Morgan in these tiny sweaters.

They are awesome sweaters and besides her Mom enjoying dressing Morgan in them, we all loved seeing Morgan in them. Thank you, Michele! ams

They are beautiful. Isnt it nice to still be able to knit up baby sweaters once yours outgrow them.
