The parents of the bud expect it shall be a baby girl in March or so. And so, I knit.
This was a fun knit, and quick too. I misunderstood the directions and totally messed up the braid trim, but I know what I did wrong, so I’ll get it right next time. I think it looks ok anyway. I added the corkscrew embellishment on top. Just the right touch of whimsy.
I love the way this one came out. It’s been a few years since I knit one, and I remembered it fairly well. When I found the perfect buttons, they came only in this size, which would have been slightly too small.
A little buttonhole stitch around the buttonhole . . .
And a sewn shank for the button . . .
The buttons are perfect after all.
I like the way paired lifted increases look here too.
I like this little jacket so much, I kinda hate to send it away. I suppose it deserves a baby, and this one is guaranteed to be a real cutie. Maybe I’ll make an adult surprise jacket in yummy yarn for me.
