Harlot Baby Sweater & Baby Churro


MidwifeKnits

Lots of baby knitting going on here! No, not for MY patients, but for my reproducing co-workers! Like rabbits they are, I tell you! It's good to have fast and easy knittables for baby gifts. The last few have been the MD Kimono...but this yarn (machine washable merino from Lorna's Laces) just didn't look right in that pattern...rippit rippit rippit...a quick search found Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's (aka Yarn Harlot) "Daisy" pattern. Sweet little raglan cardi with seed stitch borders/edging. And the matching hat...well..(the midwife pats herself on the back) that's just my math wizardry shrinking down the ubiquitous family Churro to baby size. What a cute combo eh...glad it's finished...the recipient is due on Sunday!

I love Stephanie's Daisy sweater! I've made 3 of them so far and they've all looked very different; the pattern is such a quick knit and easy to modify. Your color combo looks so cheerful and I'm sure the mommy will love it!

I will have to look up that pattern I am always knitting baby sweaters and that one is precious

I have yet to knit my first baby sweater, but I have a few wrap style ones I'm dying to try. Yours looks great!
