Baby Jacket With Seed Stitch Bands for New Grand Daughter

We have a new grand daughter due June 1st and I couldn't wait to knit some pink baby things.  So, I knitted this Pink Cabled Baby Sweater first.

(Size:  6-12-mons.)

As soon as we discovered the baby's gender, I also wanted to CO this: Baby Jacket With Seed Stitch Bands by Debbie Bliss.

The pattern is from Baby Knits for Beginners by Debbie Bliss

The book/pattern called for Baby Cashmere yarn, which is hand wash and lay flat to dry, which I don't is very practical for baby items.  I used Berroco Comfort DK yarn in Pretty Pink (#2705) and size 3 knitting needles.

I ordered the light gray buttons from Etsy.

(Size 12-mons.)

The baby cap is just a basic baby cap that I knitted on size 3 needles and a CO of 76 sts and knitted in the round for seamless knitting.



Now...all we need is that baby girl. (#5 Grand Child for us.)
