My latest baby knit that I finished in October for a virtual baby shower in November. I forgot to post it.
Presenting the baby snug, not to be confused with that other snug thingy either ;)
Snug by Hinke
Berroco Comfort Chunky in blue, 2 skeins
US 10 circular
Mods: Interesting construction. My first time doing afterthought sleeves (well what I call them) Beware when folding in half to sew the shoulders before you start the sleeves. I didn’t realize the row I ended on so on the left side I had to knit reverse (if it was a knit row I had to purl and visa versa) There was a line too at the shoulder. It’ll be fine and baby won’t notice. Just beware what row you end the body on.
I used 3 needle bind off of hood. Super easier than grafting. I did graft the shoulder/neck area though. I used the entire 2 skeins of the chunky!
Also used faux wood buttons that are washable. I really wanted the toggles, but they weren’t washable.
Out in the wild waiting on the baby :)
If you knit this, don't forget to slip the first stitch...makes the bottom look better...
Twist Hat,Wee Mitts w/string,and socks
BellaModen Sport- The Historian Colorway. Perfect for a boy I think and maybe a girl too ;) I just love this hat!
I knit these Magic 28 socks back in February. I included them in the package as I didn't have enough yarn to finish the mate to the wee sock you see below. :( At least baby will have socks to grow into :)
Hard to believe 1 skein of sportweight yarn knit a hat, mitts with string, and 2.5 socks...
I think the entire ensemble matches quite well!
