If you have a really good memory, and have reading my blog for a LONG time, you may remember that I made myself the adult version of this sweater in 2006. That sweater was SO easy to make, and in the fall/winter - I wear it more often then any other sweater - it's like my version of a sweatshirt. I found that they had the same pattern for babies - and I knew I had to make it.
Why do I say cute and CHEAP? Maybe inexpensive is the proper word - but I was able to make the 6 month size (I'm betting on having a big baby!) with only one skein of Plymouth Encore! So, forgetting time to knit (maybe 10 hours?) this is a $6 baby sweater. How cool is that?
Now that I have about 7 pairs of baby booties and 4 newborn size sweaters... I'm moving on to more complicated baby things... in bigger sizes. Nothing picture worthy yet, but when I do post? You will melt from the cuteness.
