I have a nice pile of Mission Falls 1824 cotton oddballs. I like this yarn, especially for baby sweaters. So I decided to make one for my cousin's new guy born last week. I have both of Mags Kandis' Wee Knits books and I love them. But, fresh from my poncho success, I thought I would make something up of my own. I wanted to knit in the round to avoid extra finishing and to see if I could convert a pattern this way. So I used the measurements of a sweater I liked and knit away. Here's my progress so far:
My only concern is the stripe pattern which I made up as I went along. There are four different coloured stripes. The thing is, the sleeves are longer so I will end up repeating the greenish stripe in the wrong sequence after the sleeves are joined. I guess I should of planned. Little Fisher likely won't notice though, or he'll work on his brain development with irregular patterns. Thing is, will it bug me? Maybe. Will I rip back and replan? Probably not.
