One of the two projects I needed to finish before I start using the new yarn was this cute little baby outfit. Imagine it with a baby in it and it will help it not look like a furry ghost. This is for a couple friends from Divinity School, who are also having a baby in October.
For those knitters out there, the pattern is by Sirdar and it’s pattern #1774. I absolutely love the finished product. It’s soft and snuggly and washable, all of which are perfect for a baby. The process of knitting was a little crazy. The yarn (Sirdar Snuggly Snowflake Chunky) catches really badly and the whole time I was worried about losing a stitch because there is almost no stitch definition, making fixing a dropped stitch difficult. It was also hard to pull the yarn apart if I made a mistake. The other slight frustration was piecing. There were a LOT of pieces. I think it took almost four and a half hours to piece together, weave in ends, and add the buttons. On the positive side, the thickness of the yarn made the knitting part really fast and it hid mistakes well. I’m not sure I would knit it again, but I’m definitely happy with the final product.
Thanks again, so much! It’s pretty adorable.
So adorable. I can’t wait to put the little guy in it and snuggle him.
Absolutely Adorable–Ryan and Mia’s baby will be so happy and comfy in this!
This is so cute!
