This is the sweater intended for the new baby boy mentioned in an earlier post. I plan to do I-cord around the neck and the buttons aren't sewn in place.
The sweater has sat in a bag for the past two weeks. I just don't like it. Am not sure if it's too stripey or just to much contrast. But it's knitted and I don't have any other ideas for this new baby boy whose parents love team sports.
For the future, I think I'm going to draw up a couple of Baby surprise templates that counts the number of garter ridges and indicates where the stripes are located in the garment for future planning.
Never the less, EZ's Baby Surprise remains a solid baby gift design. I've knitted 5 0r 6 of them over the past few years.
