I finished the baby’s jacket this Labor Day weekend. Whew! The pattern is free and available from the Exercise Before Knitting site. Even though for once in my life I actually checked the gauge, it’s a bit bigger than I thought it would be (and required SEVEN skeins of yarn instead of the four I planned to use), but that just means that it will last for months!
It’s hooded for chilly days:
The yarn is a cashmere and wool blend called Cashsoft Aran, made by Rowan yarns. Because the jacket is knit in a thick seed stitch, it required more yarn than I thought, but the resulting warmth is worth it!
A size comparison:
The sweater on the left is the Debbie Bliss design I finished last month (size 3 months).
I think Baby J will be cute in his preppy little hooded peacoat!
