Cotton Baby Sweater &
Cotton Baby Sweater & Flat Hat
Here's a photo of THE baby sweater (see the Bulky Babies post on 3/29 for pattern). This one my Mom knit for Zoe -- it's been through
This is definitely newborn size -- to about 3 months. The sweater is 10" wide and 9" tall. The sleeves are 6" long and are cast on 5
For the hat: Again, newborn size -- for a 14" or so head. Cast on 14" worth of stitches (for 5 st./inch, that's 70 stitches) on straight needles. Knit in stockinette if you want a rolled brim, or k1p1 rib for about 1 inch. Switch to garter stitch (knit all rows). Continue knitting for 6 or so inches. Bind off all stitches.
Finishing: Sew across top and the one open side. Attach pom-poms, yarn covered O-rings, or I-cords to the top corners. Looks like a funny potholder, but really cute on your baby!
