Garnstudio DROPS Karisma Superwash
none left in stash
1 skein = 115.0 yards (105.2 meters), 50 grams

A 3,0 circular needle for the green
two 4,0 dpns for the i-cord edge

This is going to be a lot smaller than expected, but hey - so what. There’ll be another tiny one around soon enough.

Planning to do a hood and zipper version with grey I-Cord binding and grey intarsia along the edges. Coming along fine so far.

Added some extra increase rows to the hood, until it looked right
Sleeve length confused me - stopped after 56 ridges to stay with the modular numbers, but “should have” gone on decreasing - still, looks fine to me
30cm zipper
Love the result!

fits my niece L. two months before her first b-day, so she gets it as a “loan”…


Three babies have been wearing this little jacket and it is holding up great - such a wonderful pattern. Big armholes make it easy to dress.
I-cord at lower edge is a bit tight, cinching the jacket in -- I would not recommend that.

This version came out a size 68 or 74 I guess - fit our babies at about 6-9 months (and earlier, of course)
