And I think she likes it! I know I do.
It’s the Cabled Coat with Hood from Debbie Bliss’ Baby Cashmerino book. This pattern was the reason I bought the book!
Size: 6-9 months
Yarn: Knitpicks Swish Superwash DK in Cornflower (I couldn’t spring for cashmere when I knew there would be spit up on it!)
Needles: Size 3 addi’s- the pattern said that you would need size 2 and 3, but nowhere in the pattern did I see any indication to use the size 2’s… so I just used the 3’s.
Started: January 2008
Finished: May 2008
I love this coat. I am SO happy that we have a little bit of a cold spell here in late May so that Sweet Pea can wear this!
The 6-9 month size should, by all indications, fit her throughout next winter, due to the longer style of the coat.
I do no have any buttons for this yet, because I am a little nervous about the choking hazard it would pose. I plan on waiting until Sweet Pea is past the put-everything-in-your-mouth stage before buying buttons. I also had not sewn the pocket linings down when I took the above photos.. I’ll get to that soon…
Cabling without a cable needle is a must for this project and a new skill that I have mastered after finishing this!
And we got to show it off last week at my cousin’s lacrosse game:
