FO: Ribbed Baby Jacket


Pattern: Ribbed Baby Jacket
For: ?
Size: 9-12 months
Source: There are a few. I used the free pattern on the Prima, which can be found via the Ravelry link above.
Yarn: ~356 yds Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted in M04
Needles: US 8, 6, 10 Denises
Etc: Cute button from Loopy; big snap from Joann Fabrics
Timeline: started 07.25.2008; finished: 08/02/2008; sewed button and snap on: 08.13.2008

I followed the pattern exactly as written, and didn't run into any problems whatsoever. I made the 9-12 month size because I was trying to use up as much of the yarn I had as possible. I still have some left over, so I'll have to see what I should do with that. I used US 8s for most of the knitting, 6s for the ribbing, and 10s for binding off. I used a tubular cast off for the ribbing and it took forever, but was (I think) worth it. It has structure, but is stretchy, and it definitely looks tidy.

I used Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride for the first time. It's definitely a rustic yarn, but I liked working with it a lot. Chicago babies can definitely use serious woolen garments, but I'm not sure who this will be for yet. I actually finished knitting, seaming, and blocking this by August 2nd, but it took me this long to sew on the snap and button. I hate sewing things on.
