I have been working on baby Kaidence's sweater for almost a week now. The style of the sweater is adorable and I really like the cables. It has been way too long since I have done cables. Love doing them and love the look they give to the sweater.
The title of todays blog is the real reason I am writing today. The pattern calls for the sweatwr to be knit for 7 inches below the arm pit. That would make the sweater nearly 12 inches long. Mind you, this is for a 3-6 month baby. It just so happens I have a baby doll that is the size of a 3 month baby ( on average). If made per instructions, it would come below the babies knees. Needless to say, I will be making this sweater length much shorter. Probably 5" will be perfect, especially when tryi g to buckle a car seat around it.
That being said, this sweater will be done before the weekend now. Hopefully, I can also get a good start, if not complete, a hat to go with it. I will have to "design" it, as there is no matching hat pattern attached to sweater pattern. This shouldbe interesting. I am a very visual person, designing is not my forte at all.
So on that note.......off to try and finish this sweater. ........
