Machine Knit Baby Sweater Using Sock Yarn

If you've followed my blog for a long time, you may remember this pattern. Sideways knit with sock yarn. I think it's part cotton, part acrylic, fairly standard sock yarn.
It almost fits Luca. It appears there's some growing room in the sleeves and length. I'm glad to see the proportions are fairly good, so can recommend it to you to make. I remember being amazed that the two fronts seem to match---a happy accident. I'm sure if I tried I wouldn't have gotten it right. It's a free pattern if you follow the link. OR, scroll way down on the right side until you see the sweater, then click on it to be transported to the post. In order to see the schematic better, you may need to click on it to enlarge it, then print out.

Too bad the temp is in the 80's in LA. But Jeans!!! How cute is that!
