Over the last couple of years, my extended family has exploded: in a good way! Many of my cousins are now starting their families. It’s been my goal to gift to them a knitted sweater and small quilt with each new arrival. So far, I’ve been pretty good about getting it done!
The pattern is called Wee Peanut. It has a simple 4 stitch cable pattern down the front. Hopefully, I’ll have enough extra yarn to make a matching hat.
I love the color I chose! But red is also one of my favorite colors! The body of the sweater is almost done, then I will move to the sleeves.
I think I need to spend some time creating my own knitting patterns. There are a lot of beautiful stitches to use to make baby sweaters. My sister-in-law just had her baby which is a preemie and I’ve had a hard time finding patterns that are sized for preemies. I would make sure my patterns cover a wide range of sizes.
