Baby sweater

current mood: happy

A picture of a baby sweater I just finished for a woman my husband works with who is expecting her first little one (a girl!).

Needle size was 6, yarn was Laines Du Nord Baby Cover in color 662 Lime Pink. 100% new merino wool, shrink resistant. It's the third one I've made using the same pattern, although the first one was for a teddy bear so the arms were shorter and the hood had holes for the ears. :D The pattern is a variation of the baby surprise sweater and the body is made in 2 pieces then joined with a kitchener stitch, the hood is knit on and then the band around the body.

The colors didn't come out well in the picture, but were a lovely green with bits of lavender, yellow and pink. The buttons are heart shaped and white.
