Yay, I finally tried the sweater on the babe and even got photos, all in the same day! Let’s pretend it isn’t nearly a month after the last end was woven in …
The pattern is Gavyn.
While I didn’t love everything about the pattern, or the knitting, I do think I quite like the finished sweater.
This was my first bottom-up sweater, my first non-raglan sweater. I made the 12-month size and added an inch to the length of the body of the sweater and about 3/4-inch to the sleeve length, because my boy is tall and long-torso-ed.
It doesn’t look as big on him (at 7 months) as I thought it was, as I was aiming for, but it will still hopefully fit him all this winter.
I used recycled sweater yarn, in 100 percent cotton; tripling the yarn gave me gauge on the recommended needle size.
