|MMMM CHEVRON GOODNESS.|
Isn't it pretty! I'm so happy with how it came out.
I knit it in direct violation of my "don't knit for newborns" rule. See newborns grow SO FLIPPING FAST that I usually give a hand knit as a first birthday gift instead. A sweater that is worn with the sleeves flipped up on a 1 year old will still fit at 2 and sometimes even for another winter. But newborns? Maybe you get a month out of it. And they'll probably puke on it. Blergh. HOWEVER this kid got me to break my rule:
|So. Much. Adorable.|
|AT LEAST MY GRANDMA KNIT FOR ME.|
|Also he gets to play with all of his siblings toys.|
I also added in a garter stitch edging all around to give it a more finished look:
Yay for 3rd babies and Yay for handknits!
