Owly

Photobucket

The baby has already outgrown his Baby Sophisticate sweater, the one I called "The Librarian", so I made a new one, carefully calculating a larger size...

The first: "The Librarian":

At first I planned to make this one exactly like the first - I even bought the same yarn. But I happened to pick up two skeins of navy Baby Cashmerino (Debbie Bliss) at my LYS and it really gave me ideas.

To make the right size for a 20 lb, 6 mo old baby I knit it according to measurements:
21" around chest
7" long from underarm to hem
6" from underarm to sleeve cuff
10.5" length from shoulder to hem

This pattern uses a US size 8 circular needle, and about 125 yards of DK yarn....

It fits perfectly and I hope to get some modeled pictures soon!
