Alpaca February Baby Sweater
At last I have got around to posting my February Baby Sweater knit for my 20 month old daughter. It's made up of Blue Sky Alpaca Sportweight leftovers from a couple of other projects, knit on a 4.5mm needle to be loose, - more details on my blog www.didyoumakeityourself.com - didn't have a clue what size it would turn out but new that she would grow into it sooner or later! I did the yolk in stocking stitch because I'm not the biggest fan of garter, and I left out the buttonholes because I imagined it pinned with something sparkly and or big. As you can see there is ample room in it, Betsy has worn it a couple of times pinned over with a brooch and I guess it might last her a couple of years because it's loose and easy going on the size and fasten front. Must do one for myself next.
