The cat is finally out of the bag that my sister is expecting a baby, too! I absolutely love that we are pregnant at the same time, her just 9 weeks behind me. She did have to mix things up a little and is having a boy to mingle with our three girls.
We couldn’t be more excited.
This did, however, throw a kink into my knitting. I mean, boys? What the heck do you knit for baby boys other than blankets (did it), hats (did it) and mittens (did it)?
When I couldn’t find something I loved, I did what any sane, 35 week pregnant woman would do…I designed something myself.
Appropriately titled Wyatt after my soon-to-be nephew, this unisex pullover sweater is finally ready for test knitters and tech editing. I’m hopeful that it’s release will occur before Jessica’s arrival in late December/early January.
I do still have room for a few new test knitters, so if you are interested, please let me know. Sneak peaks, yarn requirements, and additional information are located below.
Wyatt is a unisex, pullover variation of in threes: a baby cardigan. It was designed with Malabrigo Twist, a light chunky weight yarn, in mind. Only requiring the knit and purl stitches, the ability to cast on and bind off, and a basic understanding of seaming, it’s ideal for both an advanced beginner through a more experienced knitter.
Gauge: 16 stitches to 4 inches
Yarn Requirements: 2 (2, 2/3, 3, 3, 3/4) skeins of Malabrigo Twist or a similar weight wool. The approximate yardage is 190 (240, 300, 350, 400, 450).
