February Baby Sweater Finished
Pattern: EZ's February Baby Sweater in Knitter's Almanac
Yarn: Leftovers. I used some Filatura Brilla for the yoke and the Valley Yarns Superwash that was leftover from my mom's first attempted sweater. Simple white buttons found at Joann's.
Verdict: Really cute. This is for a co-worker whose wife is expecting a baby girl next month. I don't know him real well, but I wanted an excuse to make this little one. I've seen it a lot in blogland and it's got that lovely, vintage baby sweater thing going.
Modifications: Zilch. Just the little flower I added to make it even girlier.
What I learned: Nothing too new here, but this was my first official EZ pattern. The real difference that was interesting is the extra stitches she adds under the arms. Most top-down patterns don't incorporate this. I'm not sure yet which is better, if either is, but I think for a baby roomier is probably better. Don't want to squeeze the chubby little arms.
Stay tuned for a (hopefully) finished Beau soon....just in time for spring.
