First Grand Niece/Nephew Baby Sweater
Pattern: EZ's Surplice Baby Jacket from VK Spring/Summer 2007
Yarn: Rowan Pure Wool DK in Avocado (~2 1/4 x50 gram balls) and Navy (~1/3 x50 gram ball)
Needles: US Size 5 Knit Picks Options
Finished Measurements: Approximately 10"x10". I knit to the smaller size, but my gauge didn't match precisely. The joy of baby sweaters, for me, is not worrying about getting an exact size. Sooner or later, this will fit.
This was another clever and fun recipe from EZ. I followed the optional guidelines for longer ribbed cuffs and added contrasting I-cord. I also incorporated the suggestion to purl the "marked" stitches on the wrong side to produce a pronounced knit diagonal.
