Cable and Seed Stitch Jacket

Pattern: Cable and Seed Stitch Jacket, by Debbie Bliss, Debbie Bliss: The Baby Knits Book, 6-12 month size
Yarn: Plymouth Encore, #9621, 2 skeins
Needles: Addi Turbos, US 8 (5mm)

Yay, baby sweaters!

This is a super fast and super easy knit and the finished sweater is super cute. I just hope the baby actually turns out to be a girl. The parents couldn’t tell from the ultrasound if the baby is a girl or a boy who is really, really, really shy about flashing the world his private parts.

(Accidental) Modifications
The pattern only calls for 7 buttons. Frankly, you could probably get away with having only five. But thanks to my Amazing Math Prowess, I put in 8 buttonholes, so 8 buttons it was.

Also, the pattern calls for over 600 yards of a worsted weight yarn to finish this size; I needed less than 400.

See the pretty ribbon reinforcing the button band?

Yeah, I didn’t do any of that. I didn’t sew the buttons on either. My grandma was visiting, so I approached her with my arms full of sweater, ribbon, thread, and buttons, and a hopeless puppy look on my face, and she installed all that for me. And she taught me how to attach buttons securely. Hooray for grandmas!
