This pattern was ‘born’ when a friend adopted a beautiful boy she named Moses. Of course I decided he needed a basketweave sweater! I love hoods and easy closures on babies. I like to make baby projects in relative inexpensive, washable yarn (they grow so fast, and spit up so much!) but the strong textured pattern looks good in all kinds of yarn!
Hooded drop sleeve jacket in worsted weight yarn. Basketweave pattern with garter stitch edges with zipper closure (but you could use toggles, buttons, clasps, ties, etc.) Knit flat. Shown in size 6-9 months. In sizes 0-3m/6-9m/12m/18m/24m
I designed this when a beloved cousin was pregnant and didn’t know the gender of the baby to be- I wanted something with openwork (summer baby!) but not necessarily lacey/feminine. That’s also why I chose a white yarn.
A unisex, easy to knit boatneck with long dropped sleeves. Directions are included for knitting in the round or knitting flat, and the pattern stitch is given in both word and chart form, so whatever your knitting style, you’ll find everything you need! (plus, as a bonus there are directions for a matching blanket!)
This sweater was born when a friend (very) unexpectedly became a grandfather. I wanted to design a cardigan whose simplicity would work to showcase a beautiful sock yarn. Although I named it “Mason” (after the baby in question) there’s certainly nothing particularly masculine about the design.
Raglan cardigan in sock/fingering weight yarn. Moss stitch edges with button closure for a traditional look. Knit in the round for easy finishing. Shown in size 12 months.
In sizes 0-3m/6-9m/12m/18m/24m- finished chest 20.5”/23”/25”/26”/27”(52/58/64/67/69cm); finished length 11.75”/12.5”/13.5”/14”/15” (30/32/34/36/38cm)
I live in a town called “West Brighton” and I was going to visit a friend in another state who coincidentally lived in a town called “Brighton.” As I knitted this on my way from one Brighton to another, I thought this was an appropriate name!
Easy to knit jacket with seed stitch/British moss stitch sleeves and shaped hood. Can be closed with buttons, zipper or ties. The front bands are worked as you go, and the body is knit in one piece, so the finishing is kept to a minimum. In worsted weight for sizes 3 months/6 months/12 months/size 2/size 4
I just love capes on babies (well, on anyone, but especially babies)- so easy to layer over other pieces, and no struggling to get arms into sleeves! Also, you don’t need to know exactly what size the baby is (or is going to turn out to be!) if you’re gift knitting (or knitting in anticipation!) I used an inexpensive, very washable yarn, but a luxury yarn would be lovely, especially for a special occasion!
One size hooded cape fits baby for a surprising amount of time, from wrist length to elbow to shoulder cape and everything in between. Moss stitch edges with a tie closure; cables highlight the raglan shaping lines. Knit from top down.
Super quick bulky cowl knitted in the round- requires 2 wheels roving or 3 skeins Savannah as shown; you can make it much deeper if you like (but you’ll need more yarn!) Eyelets trap air for warmth and allow you to breathe through it if you pull it up over your face (hey, it’s REALLY cold out there!)
Show your Irish spirit! This sweater was designed for a friend whose daughter wanted something special to wear to our local St. Patrick’s Day Parade! I didn’t have time for a full-on Irish cabled sweater, so I came up with this!
Crewneck pullover features an intarsia shamrock in green on an aran color background, with solid green sleeves and back. Edges are done in garter stitch. Unisex oversized sweatshirt style shaping with drop sleeves. Chart provided for intarsia design. Use any worsted weight yarn; proportions call for about twice as much green as ecru as shown, but you can make the sleeves and back ecru or striped if you prefer.
Finished chest measurements: S (40”), M (44”), L (47”), XL (52”)
