Baby Sophisticate Sweater

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!

  1. This little sweater is darling. Just added it to my "must knit" list!

  2. I love this pattern! I have only made one so far, but as a beginner knitter I found it really easy to follow. Yours looks great and I love the colour!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I love reading each and every one!
