Another in what will likely be several baby/ child knits in a row! This hooded sweater is going to one of my friend Sarah’s soon-to-be-born twin boys. The pattern is from Debbie Bliss’ The Baby Knits Book and the yarn is Diamond Yarn’s Fine Merino Superwash.

Learning how to pick up stitches properly has made projects like these a lot more fun. I have The Knitter’s Bible to thank for that particular skill. The hoodie is knit flat and once you’ve seamed the front, back and sleeves, you pick up stitches for the hood and placket band.

The final photo looks a bit ghostly. Apologies for not thinking of a less creepy way to display the hood!

  1. HA that last photo is kind of baby-cabled-dementor-esque, but the sweater is adorable! I’ll have to add it to the queue – it’s exactly the kind of thing I’d never have the patience to make in an adult size, but would be perfect for any of the members of the forthcoming army of babies. Seriously, what is it with all the babies lately!
