Wrap-around Newborn sweater
Pattern: Judy’s Grandmother’s Baby Sweater from Greetings from the Knit Cafe
Yarn: Aracaunia by Atacama
Needles: No. 5 Addi Turbos
Started: Sometime in October
Impressions: This is one of those genius knits where there is nary a seam, although you do have to pick up stitches in several places which takes me just as long. The benefit to a seamless baby sweater though is that there are no lumpy seams. It seems like a good way to use variegated yarn as well since it’s such a simple stitch. I personally don’t like multi-coloured yarn in things that are too complicated and am always searching for good patterns to highlight the colours in the yarn. I might try doing this again in something lighter weight or more cottony as I think this sweater is going to be really, really warm. It is soft though. This is just one of those really freakin’ cool patterns. Cause it’s seamless folks. Cross posted at my blog.
