I've always loved to make things with my hands. I've scrapbooked, sewn, even made saddles and western chaps! Since having babies I've embraced my inner grandma and become completely obsessed with knitting and crochet.
With four boys, and now a girl, I've focused my designing on darling boy clothing, and occasionally entertain the cute girl things that keep showing up on my needles!
Edith is a sweet baby sweater with puffed, ruffled sleeves, an offset button band, and optional ruffles along the bottom. Perfect for newborns to 2 years old! (With an older version in the works!)
Worked flat to begin with, and then joined to work in the round, with seamless raglan sleeves, Edith is fun and simple. The ruffles are added after the rest of the sweater has been knit, and add a simple challenge with a lot of pay off!
The sample was knit with Cascade Yarn 220 Superwash Sport, but any sport weight or DK weigh yarn able to get gauge is fine.
