I think this may be my new favourite yarn for baby knits – The Fibre Company Canopy Fingering. It’s so soft and has the nicest drape once blocked. This little baby sweater for Arjun (Courtney Kelley’s free Fiddlehead Pullover) took three skeins in Wild Ginger.

I picked up the red leather buttons at Americo on Queen Street West. Have you ever used their yarn? I fell in love with their Suri Alpaca but left it at the buttons and a crochet hook to finish the neck edge and button loops. What restraint!

  1. Thanks Elena! We’re definitely on the same wavelength – your version is very sweet. And it was after looking at yours that I realized I forgot to do the crochet edging on the front of the neck. Good thing I haven’t wrapped it up yet. So thank you for that as well!

  2. This is such a sweet little jumper as are the red leather buttons you chose all knitted so beautifully !

    I love alpaca I’m currently spinning some fleece at the moment in grey –> YUM!

    THANKS for the link to Americo –> WOW ! …I haven’t time to look right now but the opening page is enough to get me really excited about looking in detail later, the bags are amazing and that’s all I’ve seen so far…lol

  3. What a beautiful knit! The pattern is gorgeous and rather elegant for a baby/child garment. Oh wow, for those leather buttons! Thanks for the link/tip to Americo, I’ll check it out when next in Toronto.
