Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy

 

Cables Baby

The next sweater will be a cable job. I decided to wing it. Using the same Dark Horse yarn, this sweater will be a deep red. The swatch samples are left over blue from the Baby Surprise jacket.
I wanted the sweater to fit up to 6 months size, and I hope this will be big enough. You have to allow for it going over his inner clothes. I planned on 22 inches around the chest.
The swatch for the front of the sweater, it is a cardi. I mean why not make it hard for your self Suzann :D

The back is a bit of photo shop magic. I wanted to see how this pattern would look as an all over pattern. I liked it a lot and cast on for the back.

I have to take a picture of the finished back in all its red glory :) I would like to put a hood on this one, maybe a cable around the edge of the hood. I would also like to finish it before the kid goes off to school :-)

Great Surprise jacket, lovin' the cables - yeah, just the right thing for a break from the SJ. The mom and dad are going to be so jazzed with the new baby clothes!

Glad to see new posts from you.

Thanks ladies. I love knitting cables. And a baby sweater is small enough that you don't get bored with it.
