For this sweater, I wanted a simple textured stitch pattern. Something that didn’t take a lot of concentration, but had a more dramatic effect than all-over stockinette.

I’ve also had a thing for the Matthew Cuthbert sweater style for men. Big and warm with huge shawl collars for those super chilly nights on Prince Edward Island. And since newborn boys always look like darling little old men, the style seemed thoroughly appropriate.

When I first discovered Remix, I picked up some grey and blue. But I never ended up using the blue, so this ended up being a great little stash busting project. If you go out and buy the yarn, the sweater only requires one skein, and should only set you back about $10. A pretty cheap little baby knit in my mind.
