An FO for the little ones

This year, there are no less than 15 babies being born to people I love. It's quite clearly out of control. And I just can't knit that fast. However, there are some babies whose moms have been through so much with me, I can't deny them the handknits.

The Cabled Raglan Baby Sweater may be one of my new baby favorites.

Baby Cabled Raglan Cardigan

Pattern: Cabled Raglan Baby Sweater- Rav
Needles: Knit Picks Options US 4
Yarn: Knit Picks Simply Cotton Sport- Malted Milk
Date Started: 6/17/09
Date Finished: 7/25/9
Mods: I did not use any closure on this sweater. No buttons. No snaps. I think it'll be cute to just let it be open and it'll be easy to throw this on over any outfit.

The organic cotton was wonderful to work with. And I'm always impressed that Knit Picks can offer such quality at such a low price.

It's adorable. I can't resist cables and I love little baby/toddler cardis that have cables. Leaving it button and snap free is good. I rarely ever buttoned or snapped my kiddos cardis.

I just used that yarn for a baby sweater too - loved it. Yours looks great!

15 pairs of baby socks wouldn't take too long...

That's beautiful! Simple, elegant, clean lines, but I can just see it on a cute little baby... perfect as is, no need to add anything.
