Handmade Gifts, Sweaters, Test Knit

Nautty Boy Baby Sweater


It’s done. I really enjoyed knitting this baby sweater. I just love the texture. I’ve already had requests from my Daughter for a sweater for one of her baby dolls. 😉

I used US #5 knitting needles and some off white Red Heart yarn that was gifted to me a few years ago.

Now I just need to come up with a matching hat and I will have a super cute baby gift for baby #9.

You can purchase the pattern here.

Nautty Boy Baby Sweater – Test Knit



I have been busy knitting this super cute little baby sweater as a gift for the 9th Grandchild in my Hubby’s family. The baby is due to arrive in April and we don’t know a gender yet. I thought that an off white sweater would be cute and I will pick out gender appropriate buttons later on or I might decide to use some wooden buttons.

Andre Sue offered me a chance to test knit this pattern before she puts it on the market to sell. I have never had the opportunity to test knit a pattern before so I think that it is quite exciting. Thus far the pattern has been a breeze but I had best get back to work so that I can get everything done by the end of the month. After that I need to finish 2 hats for Christmas gifts as well as the remaining 13 Christmas ornaments.

Have a great weekend!!!!!
