February Sweater for him.





Pattern: Baby Sweater on Two Needles (February) by Elizabeth Zimmermann [Ravelry link]
Yarn: Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Superwash Sport in Lichen (SWS18), purchased at Natural Stitches; buttons purchased at JoAnn Fabrics
Mods: Used kf&b to increase in yoke (k1, kf&b, repeat across) instead of EZ’s suggested m1 to avoid holes; worked yoke to just before the sleeves before switching to stockinette instead of gull lace pattern; worked six buttonholes; knit sleeves in the round instead of flat, after completing the body; worked decreases for sleeves similar to bottom of body (k5, k2tog around)
Recipient: Baby B

Now that the baby sweaters are finished, I think it's high time that I get back to the lace!
