Ribbed Baby Jacket

I finished this little Ribbed Baby Jacket up several days ago, but was struggling to find the camera cord to upload the photos! Of course, the junk drawer is a treasure trove. I would take a photo with the boys in the jacket, but it's a wee too big still and they will have to model it in the Wintertime when it fits better.

I was pretty pleased with the results. It's cute and simple. However, it took longer than expected, and seemed to gobble up the yarn!

I chose a size that would be large on them so that it will fit the boys all winter long. Maybe into Spring. Who knows.

Debbie Bliss' Ribbed Baby Jacket
Size: 6-9 month, although it will be more like size 1 yr for my preemie boys.
Needles: Size US7 circulars
Yarn: 2 skeins of Vanna' Choice in Pea Green
Mods: 10 rows of 2x2 ribbing on the bottom, buttons, arm shaping (I didn't do the three sets of 8sts BO's. I did 1 set of BO8 and then 4 sets of BO6 for a smoother transition in the shaping)
Started: October 5th, 2011
Finished: October 7th, 2011

Really cute sweater. Sometimes I don't follow the directions but add my own touches. I see that you did that. Nice work.

This is such a sweet looking sweater. I've got a niece coming along in a few months and I might just have to try this. I'll be sure to get some extra yarn.
