I finished the last of my baby cycle knits....the baby raglan. Beth sent me this pattern from a Debbie Bliss collection. It was easy to knit with plenty of stockinette.
This sweater was knit in pieces and then seamed together. I haven't done too many sweaters that required seaming, so this one gave me some much needed practice in seaming. I used this video to help me with the raglan seams. If you're wanting to work on your seaming techniques, this is a great little sweater to give you some practice.
I love the feel of this yarn....so soft and silky. I used just over two skeins to knit the 3 month size. Because the front and back are identical, I added a tag to the back so that it was obvious which side should be the front. (I thought the raglans were a bit more precise looking on one side than on the other) I also did a single crochet around the neckline to stablize it and clean it up just a bit.
That should do it for a while on the baby sweater front....although I do have enough yarn left over that I might be able to squeeze out a hat to go along with each sweater....we'll see!
