It’s important for babies to have an outfit to wear home from the hospital right? So I figured my baby needs a little sweater. And what better pattern than Perpernum? Even the name is right!
For some reason I cast on this sweater thinking I’d knit it in a day. Well, it actually took a whole weekend (with a fair amount of co-piloting and knitting) But that’s still pretty quick!
I trimmed it in the same green merino/silk blend as the leaf hat I knit earlier. In fact, I’m thinking the two can be a going home set! The odd bit there is that both are designed by Kelly Brooker – and I totally didn’t plan it that way. In fact, I didn’t even realize it until I started knitting this little sweater and thought to myself “gee, this layout looks familiar” Yup. I recognized her by her font and pattern style.
Isn’t the embroidery adorable?! I wanted a little flower, but decided to use a spiral because it’s a little less standard. I love the bright colors of this for a baby. Pastels are pretty, but babies like bright colors more, right? This yarn is Edna, a DK from Dirty Water Dyeworks. It’s a silk/polworth blend so, like the hat, the sweater should be soft enough for a newborn.
Even the inside of my embroidery is pretty neat. I guess all this practice I’m getting is actually improving my skills!
