FO Friday: Baby Sophisticate #8

I have another Christmas knit in the bag! My 8th Baby Sophisticate has buttons and is blocked.

Pattern: Baby Sophisticate by Linden Down

Yarn: Cascade Yarns Cherub Aran in Navy (I used just a few yards shy of one full skein of this yarn)

Needles: US 7s

Mods: None

I’m especially proud of the buttons. They are shanked buttons with little sneakers. I found them at the quilt shop I took my mom and aunt to.

This wasn’t my best button band ever. I’m not sure I got the ratio of picked up stitches right. But for a baby knit that is just going to get chewed and puked on….it’s good enough. No one will notice but me. To be honest I’m just glad this is done and I can move on to other things. I seem to be suffering from a bit of the knitting fever, lol.

Happy Knitting!

Cast On: Another Baby Sophisticate

A dear friend from literally pre-school is having a little baby boy. She and her husband worked and prayed very hard for this miracle. So I want to make something extra special. I’ve already knit a blanket.

Now the little mister needs a sweater! I am going with an old standby…theĀ Baby Sophisticate by Linden Down. I pulled some Cascade Yarns Cherub Aran in a navy colorway from my stash. I bought this for a Jellybean sweater but he quickly outgrew this yardage before I could get knitting.

Ravelry tells me that this is the 8th such sweater I have knit. Nothing wrong with a great classic! Do you have any repeatable patterns?
