Baby Knits – Yugo Sweater, Rose Baby Hat, Sweet-Pea and Merry-Jane Booties

I got a request for a baby sweater like the one I knit for my dad (baby’s great-grandfather).  Kind of an old man sweater, tweed, shawl collar, patch pockets.

For inspiration, I went yarn shopping online at Hazel Knits.  We exchanged email to discuss colors, and followed up with a safe socially distanced curbside pick-up.  Several shades of pink were lined up so I could ‘window shop’ and point to the one I wanted. EmojiEmoji

Inspiration

Okay.
On to Ravelry to find a baby version of Grampa’s sweater…

Yugo by Marianne Munier in Hazel Knits Lively DK.

So cute I could hardly stop giggling.

And then I just kept going.

The yarn softened up marvelously after washing and blocking.

Merry-Jane Booties by Bekah Knits in Hazel Knits Artisan Sock

BOOTIE MODIFICATIONS:
1)  Provisional cast on.  Cast on edge later closed with a reverse Kitchener stitch.
2)  Shoe section knit in the round.
3)  Embroidered buttons.  As I recall, babies can put their feet in their mouths and I didn’t want to risk a choking hazard.

It still makes me giggle.

    Soo sweet. I didn’t know the part about GG’s sweater. Those booties and that hat, too. Adorable.
