Baby Fluff

When my daughter came over for Thanksgiving on Sunday she brought her numerous knitting projects along. One of them was a cute baby sweater she is making for her friend. Just looking at and touching the tiny, pastel thing made me want to rush right out and buy yarn for a baby outfit.

And so I did.



This fluffy pink and white confection is not quite as innocent as it looks. It is a seductress, taking me temporarily away from knitting the Rogue. (Which by the way, I have nearly completed the back of).

I think I'll two-time today. I'll knit a little of them both.

That certainly looks like confection. It is adorable. I'd love to make my daughter something like that for Christmas. What pattern are you using?

I think I read somewhere that your daughter is only 18 months old? This pattern is likely too small. The largest size is to fit a 22" chest with a back length of 13". There are several Preemie sizes though.....from only 12"!

It is Stylecraft pattern #4855 and calls for Eskimo DK (the fluffy part) and Special DK for the trim.

Yes, my daughter is, well, 19 months old now. I think I can just take a plain sweater pattern and add the fur as trim on the cuffs and hem...possibly manage a different style collar to add the fur there as well. Hmmm, should be an interesting project.
