On Wednesday while watching episodes the first episodes of Castle (I just adore Nathan Fillion) on dvd, I finished up the Top-Down Baby Raglan. It is my third completed project for the 12 in 2011 challenge. I used Carole Barenys’ Top Down Seamless Raglan Baby Sweater (Garter Ridge Version) pattern but skipped the garter ridges. I love using Knit Picks Felici Sport for baby sweaters, basic patterns work up so cute. This sweater is for the newest addition to the family, my second cousin Connor, who was born at the end of March.
The first baby sweater that I made out of Felici is the Moss Stitch Baby Jacket. I used Anna Andréason’s Fina bebisens dubbelknäppta kofta pattern with the help of Google to translate it to English from Swedish. The translation was not perfect for all the knitting terms, but it was easy enough to figure out the meaning of the pattern. This sweater was gifted to Lukas, my second cousin who was born in January.
Now I need to make another boy’s baby sweater to prepare for future babies (although I don’t know of any who are on the way). I’ve had a Helena waiting for a girl baby for a year now.
