Notes

This is the second time I’ve knit this pattern and I love it again.
This little sweater would make a great gift idea for a new baby boy.

I wanted to try spinning the yarn this time and, of course, I like it even more than the commercial one.
The stitch pattern is simple and easy to memorize and keep track of where you are.

I usually like no sew patterns and in this one the set-in sleeves require a bit of sewing together but I felt it was worth it for the look. I was looking for a pattern that would look good on a baby boy that would be a little more dressy than most.
I just sewed the pieces together as I finished them so I didn’t end up with all of it to do at the end.

The look is great for a baby boy or girl.
Very soft for next to baby skin.
