february baby jacket

Knitter's Almanac by Elizabeth Zimmerman is fantasic collection of project ideas for each month of the year. This book is a great addition to your library, not only for the multitude of great patterns, but for the pleasure of Ms. Zimmerman's company as she recounts her inspiration for, and opinions about, each garment.

This wonderful baby sweater falls under "Some Babies' Things" for the month of February. Grace chose to knit this sweater in 3 skeins of Blue Sky Alpacas Hand Spun Organic Cotton, making it a great choice for spring and summer babies. The jacket is knit from the top down, with a sweet garter stitch yoke giving way to a pretty gull stitch pattern.

This classic design is fun to knit and every baby's mother will be duly impressed!
