Is it just me, or is this enough to make any knitter's heart sink?
To be perfectly honest I’m in no rush. It’s a Debbie Bliss pattern from ‘New Baby Knits’ and therefore HUGE. It’s my own fault for not looking properly. Miss Not-so-Bliss gives ages as well as sizes and stupid me looked at the age a few weeks before starting the pattern, decided to do the bigger size and then rushed into starting it weeks later. I’d completely forgotten that the chest size was 28” for a 9-12 month old!!! In reality it will probably fit the kid in question at age 7. I could smack myself round the head over it. Still it’s done and now I just have to find a little girl to go in it. It has to be a girl as there are hearts across the top, you couldn’t tell what they were in the chart and once they were done I was really disappointed. I do think they look nice but I was hoping for something a bit more unisex. I don’t know many 7 year old boys that would happily walk round in it - not even for a bet!
I altered the given pattern, the sleeves were supposed to be done with the pattern all the way up like the fronts, but I thought it was a bit over the top *cough* couldn’t be bothered *cough*. I do think it looks a lot better like this, it would be far too busy otherwise. It’s worked in matt black and white DK acrylic.
