I was not looking for baby knitting when this cute little sweater pattern caught my eyes on a blog. And I had some Silk Alpaca yarn lying around - perfect. It was a quick and fun knit.
I fell for the simplicity of the garter stitch together with the feather pattern.
I don't like working garter stitch in the round, and I don't like seaming, so I worked in the round, but turning work each round, joining in one side using wrap and turn. Not a perfect solution. I worked the sleeves flat. Next time I would probably work the body flat too, for some reason my garter stitch doesn't look the same when I work it in the round, knitting and purling.
The yarn is very soft, and I like the colours it comes in. The sweater will be sent to a little baby girl one of these days.
Btw, today is the last day to enter a comment for the giveaway of the 1.000 fabulous knit hats book!
