I'm back today to show you, as promised, the little newborn knitted jacket I whipped up with leftover yarn from my pullover sweater from my previous post.
I have a upcoming baby shower to attend at the end of November so what better than a little jacket for the precious newborn to wear home from the hospital.
I am thinking that a little hat and shoes would go nicely with it, don't you think!
By looking at my choice of colors....you guessed it.....it's a GIRL!
It's all made from baby soft yarn in white with a striped pattern in the middle, of brown, dark pink and pale pink. The brown looks almost black in this photo....so sorry.....bad lighting today. The one below will give you a better view of the colors.
I used a size F crochet hook for the collar, following THIS PATTERN until the bottom part. That's when I switched from my crochet hook to a size 6 knitting needle to finish the body and the sleeves.
Add buttons and little appliques if you like to add another touch.
I hope I have given a new twist on making little jacket.
see you all again soon....
