Vintage Smocked Baby Sweater

Pattern:  Vintage Smocked Sweater
Needles:  Size 4 & 6
Yarn:  Berroco Comfort DK - 4 balls 

Selecting yarn in a solid color way definitely show up pattern a little more.  The sweater can also be knitted with a shawl color for a much warmer effect.

This pattern is easy to follow and a quick knit.  It has a twisted ribbing which allows the design to really "pop".  It can be worn comfortably on a baby/toddler wearing a diaper.

Pattern calls for 3 buttons.  I selected 3/4" elephants but that is subject to change as the pattern did not state the size.

This yarn is acrylic and machine washable keeping in mind a mom's busy schedule.

The sweater is being knitted with love for my wonderful granddaughter, Abigail.  She is inquisitive and good-natured.  Now that she is one year old, she has become a serious shopper as you can see in the pictures below.

Happy Knitting!
