F.O. Ribbed Baby Sweater




I'll try to get some better photos - but the light and the "helper" cat seem to not want to work.

Project Details:
A free Debbie Bliss pattern. Started on December 2nd and finished on December 10th this was a fast little knit. It uses an aran weight yarn (which I think helps). It is knit flat from the bottom up and then just seamed under the arms and down the sides (which was pretty cool). I used Universal Yarn (which is machine washable and feels amazing). Here are my notes from Ravelry and what I learned with this pattern (could be my poor reading of the pattern or a bug):
"Once you cast off the stitches for the neck you continue for the arms (I did both arms at the same time by using two skeins of yarn). The pattern says Shape Sleeve (this is where the issue was for me). It says to cast off 4 times. This cast off should be done near the edge of the sleeve (wrist edge) - I got this messed up. Next you are suppose to do 34 rows over the 16 sts. These 34 rows make up the right and left from panels of the sweater. I hope this helps someone else so they don't end up frogging like I did." Other than this small issue with the pattern it was quick and fun.

  1. CUTE!!!! I wish I knew how to knit before I had my kids. My grandkids (whenever I get them) will have to benefit from it. Your baby will be very well dressed!
