on my needles - contemporary knitted baby jacket
With still 2 projects waiting to finish I already started a new one. It is another baby cardigan, but quite different:
- set-in sleeves instead of a raglan
- it has a scarf-collar
- the knitting pattern is a type of ribbing which has a less delicate, sturdier look
This is a contemporary pattern from the French yarn brand Phildar, which appeared in their nr.74 booklet (Autumn/Winter 2012-13 baby special).
This time I'm aiming at a slightly larger size, which will hopefully fit the baby next autumn/winter.
The color is dark grey, which is a step away from the sweet baby-ish pastels. Of course, I'm using drops baby merino yarn again, which results in a wonderfully stretchy knit with great stitch definition! It is slightly thicker yarn than the originally recommended Phildar one, but knitted on metric size 3 needles I like the look of it.
The Phildar booklet contains a bunch of adorable baby patterns and costs 6.10 euro's.
