...I told you I was on a roll this week, with getting stuff finished :-)
This jacket is for my neice Leigh's, soon to be, baby.
I knitted it on 4mm needles using Fiesta Velluto, which is an 8 ply with a slight 'tufty' finish....it's really soft, and very (baby friendly) stretchy. It's a top-down pattern, with the only seam being the centre of the hood (love that!) and the front closure is just 2, knitted on i-cords. I used the free pattern found here .The only change that I made from the pattern was the width of the sleeves...I just knitted the amount of stitches that were already on the stitch holders, instead of adding more for the underarms.
It was really fast and easy to make, and the extra stretchy-ness of the yarn makes it perfect for wearing over the top of other clothes...which is really good coz it's being sent overseas, to be worn during a cold UK winter :-)
