Sassafras baby boy is due any minute now.
Mom is not the type to appreciate wool, and digging in the deep stash I found this now discontinued yarn, purchased ages ago: Artyarns Cottonspring
Mom is also not the type to handwash, so I knit a swatch, yes, I did. I KNIT A SWATCH.
I even washed and dried that sucker!
It survived, a little bit of shrinkage in the length, but otherwise okay.
The free pattern was lovely and easy to knit, Top Down Garter Stitch Baby Jacket -
I will definitely knit this again!
The buttons and grosgrain ribbon came from my stash of stuff...
|Color is most accurate here.|
|The fabric is quite soft and loose.|
|Babies are such different proportions, baby sweaters always look off to me.|
|I love this grosgrain ribbon!|
