Gingersnap, 6 mos.
Gingersnap by Kristen Rettig
6 mos.
Needles & yarn
US 5 - 3.75 mm
US 6 - 4.0 mm
Rowan Pure Wool DK
2.5 skeins = 355.0 yards (324.6 meters), 125 grams
Uncommon Threads Yarn in Los Altos, California

The original Gingersnap is knit in worsted weight yarn with a gauge of 19 sts. by 28 rows per 4 inches which made a sweater that was chest 23” and length 12”, the average one year size. The sweater above was knit in DK weight yarn with a gauge of 21 sts. by 30 rows per 4 inches and made a sweater that was chest 21” and length 10.5” which is an average 6 mos. size.

Here’s what I did: I followed the pattern exactly except substituted DK weight yarn. I used one skein each of Rowan Pure Wool DK in colors Anthracite, Cypress, and Snow. Since I used every bit of the teal with only a few yards to spare, I made the collar in the Anthracite.

Rowan Pure Wool DK is discontinued and has been replaced with Pure Wool Superwash DK. It is similar in almost every way and is an easy sub. Both are soft and machine washable and perfect for family knitting.
