Baby Boy Sweater
There’s something so snuggly and cosy about a baby wearing a warm knitted jersey or being wrapped in a lovely woolen blanket.
I’ve already knit quite a few clothing items for Miss P but now that Master L is here, it’s been fun to knit up ‘boy’ clothes too.
One item that I really wanted him to have to wear is a little ‘old man’ sweater. A proper button down cardigan style sweater with the roll neck. So when I found the Baby Sophisticate Sweater by Linden Down on Ravelry I was so excited.
It’s the perfect style for what I was looking for and had the added bonus of being seamless. I am HORRIBLE at doing seams on knitting so anything seam free is a winner for me. Plus, it’s a free pattern so it was a total winner all around!
I decided to take one of my previously dyed yarns that I wasn’t really keen on, and over dye it to create a colour way with deep blues, browns and a slight grey that I thought would be perfect for the sweater.
It was finished just before Master L arrived and just recently he finally got to wear it.
He looked so darn cute in it! My perfect ‘lil old man’ in his sweater. Gorgeous!
