This sweater set went to a little one to be born in Oct. Her mother and dad were thrilled. (blush)
The sweater is like this sweater I change the pattern each time I use a different yarn. I always increase under the arms and depending on the yarn in the front and decrease the neck. The yarn I used for this sweater was Mainstay. I used a G hook. The buttons were from Wal-Mart. The hat is from the book CROCHET HATS by Candi Jensen (Sherbet-Topped Baby). The yarn is a sk. I was given and I gather it was made in Italy and shipped from Germany that was all that was on the wrapper. It is a mistake to use a variegated on this pattern. I just wanted a simple small hat. I did not care it the design of the ripple did not show up. I was just glad it turned out this cute and a stash sk. was used. The flower I just winged it. I did add French knots in the center of the flowers. The booties are Fake Maryjanes
I think the set looks perfect for a Fall baby. I should have mentioned I flipped the brim up on the hat.
