A Sweater for Leo


I just finished this wee little fisherman's pullover for my cousins new baby boy, Leo.



This pattern, Fisherman's Pullover, is from the book 60 Quick Baby Knits. Recognize this yarn? I used the leftovers of my Madelinetosh DK in Vintage Frame from the Gramps Cardigan.

As soon as I saw this little sweater pattern in the book, I fell in love. I love little preppy boy sweaters like this! I have all of the yarn to cast on a larger size for my son next.

This sweater has everything I like in a pattern.. It was interesting but not too hard.



 I love the way these cables turned out. (They are so pretty.. err.. handsome!)


It looks like it will be a warm, cozy sweater to keep little Leo warm this winter. I look forward to shipping it out to New York tomorrow. I hope my cousin loves it! :)

Took the words right outta my mouth HANDSOME
Handsome, indeed. I must do a baby knit. Perhaps not a cabled project, but something handsome then find a baby to gift.

I love that sweater too. I love the color that you used and it will look so wonderful on the baby too. I knit mine in a forest green and the pattern was so easy to memorise.

You just solved my dilemma...what to knit for my friend's upcoming baby boy! The sweater is beautiful and the pattern sounds like it fits my criteria as well.

This sweater is perfect! I'm sure your son's will be just as handsome! I've never tried to knit a sweater, but maybe, just maybe I'll try a baby sweater. I'm a new listener and am loving your podcast. Congratulations on your Annie book too. I'm definitely getting a copy for myself. :-)
