It’s bubbling over with cuteness!
This is the Garter Stitch Jacket from Debbie Bliss’s Quick Baby Knits.
I used size 3 Addi Turbos.
I altered the pattern by giving it shaping in the front instead of being a completely rectangular piece; I just sort of decided to start decreasing one stitch at the inside edge of each row and went all the way to the bottom, leaving a straight edge at the very bottom.
Nearly done photos are here.
I bought the buttons as a fabric outlet store on Fabric Row here in Philly. I wanted small wooden buttons, nothing cheesy or silly. I stitched them on using this cute little stitch because, well, I think it’s so dainty.
This will be a gift for Lea, my friend’s baby. I hope she can still fit into it come the wintertime; she was born in June, I believe.
