Here is my finished Baby Sophisticate. I finished it a little while ago, but it was a gift and I needed to wait until the recipient received it! Overall, I am pretty happy with how it turned out. There are a few minor imperfections, but overall I think it's pretty nice.
My favorite part of this sweater is the collar, I just love it! That's what drew me to this pattern in the first place. (In fact, this pattern is one that I've had on my list since long before I figured out how to knit!)
I found some cute little owl buttons at JoAnn's, but I can't find them online. (Despite their absolute adorableness they are a bear to photograph!) The yarn is Simply Soft in Ocean. I really love this particular shade of blue!
Before I started knitting I read through all of the comments and notes on the Ravelry page, something I recommend for any pattern found there. Many people commented that the finished sweater was rather small, so I both upped my needle size from a US 8 to a US 9 and I split the difference between the two given sizes (0-3 and 6-12 months).
I had Dominic try the sweater on for me as soon as I wove in the ends. He's wearing it pre-blocking and pre-buttons in the above picture. The sweater was a little snug on him, so I'd say it ended up being roughly size 3 months, maybe a little bit larger, but not 6 months.
I do really like, and recommend, the Baby Sophisticate pattern, and I think I might even pay for the Child and Adult versions to make one for Catherine and myself!
