Another EZ Feb baby sweater
I made this sweater for a sweet girl turning one (birthday party tomorrow). Yet another February baby sweater, this time out of new cotton ease.
yarn: Cotton ease in violet 1.5 balls
needles: new Options US6 and US8 with 40in cables
pattern: from Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitter's Almanac
start date: July 17, 2007
end date: July20, 2007
modifications: As before, I knitted the sleeves in the round. The garter yoke was knitted with US6 needles and the lace was with US8. The pattern was followed except that I didn't cast on additional stitches for sleeves or body. I took a 12 month sweater and knit to that specifications. However, I did block out the sweater when I realized that she is bigger than A.
I also only put buttons on the top because I like the look.
I hope it fits.
Has anyone made an adult Feb sweater?
