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!


  1. That sweater is so precious! Love the yarn you are using for it. Just lovely!
    Happy Knitting!

  2. Oh, how I love the photos of your granddaughter. How precious! The yarn looks so nice. Pretty colors & just enough to keep the pattern interesting. Where did you find the yarn? I think that I may have used that brand before. I love those buttons. Where did you find them? Inquiring minds want to know. Can't wait to see your granddaughter in that sweater.

  3. That is a very cute pattern (along with your cute grand daughter :) ) Don't you just love the baby colors when you knit!!!

  4. Have popped in often, was sure I'd left a message or two to see how you're doing?
