Flax Light





I finished this cute little baby sweater a few weeks ago, but I’ve just gotten around to uploading the photos of it now. The pattern is a free one from Tin Can Knits, and it is as wonderful as their other patterns – thoughtfully designed, well-written, and available in such a wide range of sizes. I’m already planning other versions of this sweater in other sizes (including my own!), but I do think the baby sizes must be the cutest. I love the detailing of the garter panels on the sleeves, they add a bit of interest and really pop against the stockinette background. I got this yarn at the Kingston Sheepdog Trials from a fellow vendor and was so pleased with how it knit up, the variegation was just perfect for the simplicity of the sweater pattern. Now this sweater has been mailed off to some friends expecting their first little one – hopefully it will fit her throughout the upcoming winter!
