I completed my Baby Poonam a few days ago. I was pleased while working the pattern and am very happy with the way it turned out.
I love the look of the seed stitch on this yarn.
I should have included a picture of the back of the sweater to show how nicely the seed stitches show.
This is Bernat Softee in Bongo Blue on needles #4 and #6 made for size 9 months .
This sweater is for my newest cousin named Titus. His proud parents are Freddie and Sara and this is their fourth child. I know they don't have a lot of time to drip dry the kids clothes so, a wash and dry made the best sense.
Very Little Drama
As I mentioned before, this pattern was a pleasure to work with. I found no mistakes, there were no question marks over my head.
The only drama involved was my own, with the button choice. I am in a town with very few craft stores, no fabric boutiques. Button and zipper choices are limited. Joann's and Hancocks had very little to chose from. I found some really beautiful shell buttons but, they were the wrong color. I have no idea why I didn't compare the buttons to the swatch I had in my purse. -- As it turned out I had to purchase buttons from good old Walmart. Oh well, at least they match.
Only three to chose From...
A button less Poonam...
I also completed my other baby sweater. There is no real pattern for this one, no name. I based this pattern on another pattern I saw a few years ago. I've made it several times and there are no real directions. The variables are a bit different each time I make it.
