Baby Sophisticate


Well.. after weeks of talking about baby knits on my podcast, I think it is HIGH TIME that I actually share them with you here on the blog!

As you know, I've been preparing for the arrival of our baby boy due in less than a month! 
I've knit several baby things but have been too busy to blog about them. 
SO.. over the next few weeks, prepare to see a lot of tiny baby, knitted, cuteness. 
There is a lot to catch up on!

First up.. Baby Sophisticate.



Maybe the fastest, cutest newborn sweater EVER? This is one awesome pattern that you can find for free on Ravelry HERE.

I knit the whole sweater and a matching hat in just a few days using only one skein of Malabrigo Worsted in the taupe colorway.

I used Kate Oates Adventure Hat pattern from her new book Math For Hats. It turned out great!



Perfect future baby shower present? I think so!

If we have a boy next time, I'll definitely be going back to this pattern. I hope your not finding the last stages of pregnancy to tiring.
Thank you,

Thanks for the intro to this pattern. I've just printed it off and it will soon be on it's way to a delightful new baby boy. It's perfect for a tiny gentleman.

Gorgeous! I have made the Baby Sophisticate before using a tweedy yarn, but it is stunning in Malabrigo!
