Can't have too many February sweaters...



Sweater from "Some Babies' Things", February, Knitter's Almanac
Dream in Color Smooshy Sock yarn, much less than one skein
US #4 needles

Modifications: I cast on 7 more sts to compensate for the finer gauge, and worked a raglan yoke in stockinet so I could be lazy about math. The sweater ought to fit a 3-6 month-old baby, I think, so it should be perfect for the small recipient, who is four weeks old now.

I loved the yarn, and I certainly have enough left for the matching hat and booties. I'm looking forward to snagging some of their worsted weight for a toddler version.

  • That's a fabulous color. (I so think babies deserve fabulous colors!) How many yards/meters in that skein of sock yarn? I'm considering knitting a February sweater of Colinette jitterbug...

  • Yes the color is just wonderful! Love the flower touch!

  • I've lost the ballband, Amy, but I believe it was about 450 yards in that skein. Considering how much I had left over, I should think you'd get a sweater out of a skein of Jitterbug.

  • Can you just tell me how much yarn is in a skein, by weight. Here in the UK we almost always buy by weight.

    Just knitting my first BSJ - messed up a bit with the decreases, but the baby won't tell anyone......

  • I wanted to know how you plan to accomplish the hat... if you have time to explain, in the book the directions are vague at best.
