Baby Boy Dress Blues Cardigan and Hat

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Baby Boy Dress Blues Cardigan and Hat Link to website or photo http://www.knitpicks.com/patterns/Baby_Boy_Dress_Blues_Cardigan_Hat___D11071220.html What are you most proud of? It took several tries, but I was thrilled to be able to create an almost seamless top down sweater design in very soft sport yarn. Knitpicks.com offers the colors needed - Planetarium, Serrano, White and Black, or check your local craft or yarn shop for soft baby sport yarns. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is not a difficult project. It uses only garter stitch. It uses circular needles, but it is knit front and back because it is a cardigan, which allows the knitter to see it taking shape. The sleeves are knit right in as flat shapes and then seamed under the arms (the only seams).

You Can Make This

Woohoopepper made Baby Boy Dress Blues Cardigan and Hat with:

  • Knit Picks Comfy Sport Yarn

I don't have a baby boy to give this to --BUT, my husband is a former Marine (retired) and I am going to make this sweater for him to give to a young Marine father. Thanks for making this sweater available for all us "knitting grandmas". God Bless the United States of America.

Glad you like it! I am also a "knitting grandma" to three young granddaughters!
