I cast this Baby Sophisticate on while my husband was in hospital. I started with 6.5mm needles (not thinking clearly, obviously) and ended up pulling it apart as it was too floppy. Started again with 6mm needles and much happier than before.

I have finished knitting the body and the sleeves, and decided to block it before starting on the collar as the edges were a little curly. I’m not sure if this will turn out to be a mistake or not! Cardigan is blocked and I’m just waiting for it to dry before starting on the collar.

20 September
Well, I’ve finished knitting the collar but am not loving the w&t stitches - it seems a to have a few holes :( Oh well, I don’t think they’ll be noticeable once there’s a cute baby wearing it!

I think it will be a good size for a boofy 6mth old boy. I’ll post dimensions when finished. Now, for some buttons…

Collar frogged and re-done properly! Finally, all done.
