Baby Hoodie Times Two

I won't bother sharing the picture of the second hoodie (which was really the first) again, just scroll down to see it in the post before this one. I love these little hoodies. I suppose they are cardigans, but doesn't hoodie sound more hip? My kids have informed me I'm a walking blast from the past, so I need all the help I can get. :p


Pattern: Easy Baby Cardigan

Yarn: Knit Picks Cotlin, 1 skeins. The sweater in my previous post is Kramer Yarns Little Lehigh in the It's a Boy colorway. Let me just say, I much prefer the KP Cotlin. One thing about the red though, it bleeds....a lot. Rinse it realllly well when blocking.

Needles: Size 7

Yardage: I barely used anything from the 2nds skein of Kramer Yarns. Cotlin, takes about a skein and a half to knit the 6 months size.

Modifications: None, other than the fact that I picked up stitches and knit I-cord ties rather than crocheted or twisted ties.

I would definitely knit these sweaters again. They're great mindless knitting, which, let's face it...we all need mindless knitting sometimes. ;-)

Tomorrow, I pick my Mom up from the airport. We're going here on the way home. I can't wait.....
