Sweater for Great Granddaughter

crmartin's picture

This is a sweater I made for my soon to be born Great Granddaughter. I can't believe I'm going to be a great grandfather! The yarn is Sidar Snuggly DK, not bad for an acrylic/nylon blend. I used size 3 needles. The pattern is "Baby Sweater on Two Needles" by Elizabeth Zimmermann, It's made in one piece and the sleeve seams sewed.

Beautiful work, the yarn and stitch are really beautiful! As to being a great grandfather, since you and I are about the same age I suddenly feel very......happy for you.

So cute. Great choice of stich/pattern with the yarn.

Looks beautiful, and doing it in one piece sure reduces the finishing up time. Is this a variation on an EZ pattern?

No, it is exactly as written. The pattern is in the Knitter's Almanac.

I made that one last summer for friends who had their first child. It's a great little pattern and you did a wonderful job.

Congratulations on the anticipated arrival of your great granddaughter, Randy. The little sweater is beautiful. That Elizabeth Zimmermann was a genius, wasn't she?

I've always loved this pattern. Did it take long? I need a relatively quick knit baby gift with a big splash.

If was a fairly quick knit, I made it over a period of 3 weeks but I didn't work on it for any great amount of time per session.

Beautiful knitting. I made this pattern for a young friend and his wife when they were expecting their daughter. Actually, I made a whole layette set for the little dear. One of my favorite photos in the knitting journal is a snap of Allyson wearing the jacket and booties while wrapped in the Shetland style shawl, seated in her carrier. Your great-granddaughter is definitely going to be a trendsetter!Books, knitting, cats...Life is Good.
