Sweater for Tristan

This is going to be a sweater for Tristan. The pattern is from the new Spring Knitty. Have you seen this issue? I’m in love with a bunch of things in it like this and this and this. I love that the sweater has so many options — short or long sleeved, hood or no hood — and it’s so cute. I did have the problem of size, the pattern is written for size 12 or 18 months and my little guy is already wearing size 24 month. So, I’ve upped the gauge a little bit and I’ll increase the length a bit too. The yarn I’m using was in my stash — gotta love that — and it’s something that has been languishing in there for years. I’m making it short sleeved and with a hood — if the yarn holds out. I’m thinking he can wear it as a coverup this summer — the yarn is super soft — and then with a long sleeved tee this fall. Hopefully I can finish it quickly so I can cast on some of that other great stuff.

    Oooooo… I can’t wait to see him model his own clothes! It’ll be so cute, I’m sure.
