Until recently, I have not blogged in a very long time, mostly because I had not been knitting much at all. But now that I have twins on the way very soon, I have been on a mission to finish old projects and get some items done for them. This will be for Baby Girl (We are having a boy and girl).
Pattern: Baby Sweater on Two Needles from Elizabeth Zimmerman's
Needles: I wrote down US 2.5, but I think I actually used closer to a US 5 but I can't remember for sure.
Yarn: Knit Picks Shine Sport colorway Grass
-Widening the neck hole by Casting on 62 stitches.
-Work 8 rows in garter stitch.
-Work the first increase round as follows: K7, (M1, K6) 8 times, M1, K7 (71 sts)
-I also Slipped the first stitch of each row for a neater edge and only worked 3 buttonholes, as many other have.
Blocking really gave some shape to this sweater and I am pleased with the results. And as always I love working with Shine Sport. It is just so soft and has such a nice drape!
