Garter Yoke Baby Cardi (in yellow), Tiny Tim sweater (in blue-green), and a new sweater pattern that I made to match the Bibendum booties I posted about last time.
First, the Garter Yoke Cardi. I used Lion Brand Cotton-Ease, which I love for baby knits. The color, maize, matches a little onesie I bought a while back for Peapod. I'll be sure to post photos when she grows into this--about a 6-12 month size. I added multicolored buttons in red, yellow, and green.
I used these instructions from Chronicles of Yarnia for adding a hood to the sweater, and I decided to just knit the whole thing in garter stitch because I wanted a nice, cushy, textured sweater. For more details, see my Ravelry post.
The quilt in the background is from my nursery when I was a baby--my mom made it! I love it.
Next is a Tiny Tim sweater, which I have made three times before. This time, I made it as a cardigan. To do so, I just built in a garter stitch placket, adding buttonholes about every 8 rows.
I still love the back of Tiny Tim, and I love the stitch definition of the (now discontinued) Moda Dea Washable Wool that I used for this sweater. This was a stash yarn that I've had on hand for years! More info on my Ravelry page.
Finally, for the Bibendum sweater I used the same organic cotton from Lion Brand that I used for the booties. I think Katie gave me this yarn years ago. It is finally getting used up for these little projects.
This is a simple top-down sweater, using a garter stitch pattern similar to the top of the Bibendum booties. I'll post a full pattern soon! For now, here's my Ravelry project page.
You can see that I've made a few art projects, too, which I will post about soon.
