This sweet little jacket came together so quickly and I just adored knitting with this soft variegated Classic Elite Liberty Wool yarn—I’ve got to check out the other colorways they have!

I made it for a friend’s baby boy and it was done just in time for a baby gift when I meet him tomorrow!

The first time I made this jacket I was still learning a lot about knitting and I really struggled—I relied heavily on a row keeper and was constantly confused.

This time I just needed Elizabeth Zimmerman’s instructions and I did fine, even though they are a bit cryptic.
