a baby sweater (for the little dude)

I've had this tiny newborn sweater on the needles for awhile now, but finally had the chance to finish it over the weekend. I've decided that this is quite possibly the perfect simple baby sweater pattern. I'm thinking simple is good, especially if you're knitting for a boy.
The pattern is New Babeh by by Kayla Dyches, and I used Rowan's Amy Butler Belle Organic Aran yarn in this lovely soft gray color (zinc.) This yarn rules. It's incredibly soft – 50% organic wool and 50% organic cotton. I have a couple of extra skeins leftover, so I'm hoping to make some tiny socks or a hat (or both) to go with this sweater.

I'm pretty excited to add this to the pile of newborn clothes for our new little dude. I'm pretty sure that it will look much cuter once it's on a baby and not just lying flat on a blanket. Extra small knitting is turning out to be extra fun.

  1. Ahh it's so adorable! How exciting! It really is a shame though that there are so many cute little girl patterns and not half as many for little boys.
