Tomato Sweater

Tomato Sweater

This sweater is for a little tomato who arrived at the end of Autumn. It’s been done for a little while but waiting for me to get my act together on some big brother gifts — why can I not find 40 minutes to get into the sewing room!?!? — before it’s given. I better hurry up though or it will be too warm to wear it. The pattern is Riverstone by Justine Taylor and a really great baby sweater since all that ribbing makes it very accommodating in size. This is a 6 month size but I imagine it will fit with the ribbing stretched and the cuffs uncuffed until around 18 months. The yarn is blue sky alpaca‘s dyed cotton which is super soft and well-suited for baby gifts. The buttons are vintage vegetable ivory, perfect for a tomato sweater if you ask me.
