I've been trolling Ravelry for great baby knits. I'm not your average frilly dilly pink ribbons and bows kind of lady so I like those unique knits especially those with a vintage flare.
I've never done anything constructed this way, knitted flat sideways with the yoke picked up at the end, it was weird and I started off hating it but the magic was in the finishing. The first time I laid it all out with the belts connected I felt the way that I did the first time I saw a picture of the sweater! Beautiful! I also go to dive into my vintage button collection for the perfect button for the back belt.
The yarn helped of course. Several years ago at Stitches South I bought two skeins of Bugga from Sanguine Gryphon. I was saving the beautiful yarn for something special, my sweet baby seems to be that something special! I can't wait to see her in it and get some great pictures!
I do have a few notes on the pattern. For pattern notes and more photographs see my Agnes Baby Cardigan.
What to knit next?
