Day 7: …Vs. Girl

So yesterday was the “boy” version of the Easy-Peasy Baby Sweater, as I call it. No, I can’t tell you where to get it, because all The Fabulous Anita had was a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy of a… and the name/source of the pattern has been lost. Buttons once again purchased at JoAnn’s. There’s also a lavender version of this button I couldn’t resist.

Now, the only changes I made were to knit it in Stockinette with a 3-stitch Garter edging all around, and to crochet a row of Berocco Plush around the edge. That’s it. Other than that, it’s the exact same pattern, made the same size, with the same yarn (Cascade 220 Superwash). Because the pattern is asymmetrical, and it’s knit as one piece, I knit it so the buttons were the correct way for girls vs. boys.

Here’s the Girly Version (Ravel It!)

Cute, huh? The mom loves it, and has told me she can’t wait for this little girl to try it on. She says she keeps holding the sweater up to Baby to see if Baby’s big enough yet. LOL. When I have pictures of the baby IN the sweater, I’ll share them.
