It Doesn't Get Much Better Than This

Why is this the perfect baby sweater?

Top down- check. No seams? Count me in.

Teensy little hood- check. Parents seem to love the practicality and trendiness of those these days.

Easy, EASY care- check. An acrylic/wool blend makes for beautiful washing and cozy softness on the baby's skin. Also- let's be honest. Not all moms are into handwashing. You don't want to knit a beautiful gift for someone only to have it felt to the size of a Barbie doll!

Good price- check. Only three balls of KC Aran. THREE!!! Colour #89, Granary.

Gender neutral- check.

Cuteness factor- check. It doesn't get much cuter than seeing a small person in something that Mom or Dad might request to have made in their size.

UGH! Someone stop me! I could go on and on and on here!

Pattern- Knitting Pure and Simple- Pattern #211, Baby Tunic.

Yarn- KC Aran. 3 balls.

Size- 18 months.

Knitter- not I, but Mary! She giggled the whole way through. (I heard her from upstairs).
