This is one of my favourite baby knits. I saved this pattern a long time ago and in 2012 decided to make it. I knit the body and sleeves in one weekend and then it sat unfinished for two years in a ziplock bag, only needing to be stitched together. It was a pretty quick knit overall and not nearly as complicated as I thought it would be by looking at the photos. In the fall I finished it, just in time for Felicity to outgrow it. I did manage to get a few photos of it on her back in October before it cut off the circulation in her cute little arms. I guess it was just meant to be gifted to another little lady.
This is a vintage pattern that was reprinted in a book called Vintage Baby Knits. I have the original pattern too which is from a book of knits for “rest and relaxation.” The best part of the original pattern is that there is a matching shrug for mom. Maybe one of these days I’ll knit Felicity and I matching sweaters that we can lounge around in. Ha!
