Well I seem to be on a knitting spree! Last week I posted about the 2 little “Pink Foot” cardigans I knitted! This week I finished knitting a little blue hoody for a “Little Man”!
I found the pattern in “The Ultimate book of Baby Knits” by Debbie Bliss the pattern is on pg 68 and she calls it a “Duffel coat”. As I live on the back side of the world, you cannot buy Debbie Bliss yarn in this country and I didn’t have the time to wait 10 weeks for it to be delivered from overseas so I just dove into my own stash and found a Sirdar Denim Sport Aran shade 0502.
I had to knit up a tension swatch to check the gauge of the yarn I had to the pattern, as the pattern called for a DK! After doing all of this I decided the best way was to cast on for a size 6-9 months and knit the measurements as for 9-12 months using 4mm needles! Hopefully it will fit a 10 month old baby!
The pattern was easy to read and understand as I am not a very good knitter I still have to look up to see what a garter stitch and stocking stitch is!
I started knitting something for myself! Hope to show you soon!
