I went to a shower this weekend for a friend who is having a baby boy soon. This is the sweater I made for him. It's the Baby Sophisticate by Linden Down.
I learned a few new things with this pattern. This was the first time I've done raglan sleeves and I love it! The increase used was a backward loop. The collar was made with a wrap and turn (w&t). I'm not a big fan of seaming, so I was thrilled to do most of it in one piece.
I used Lion Cotton, so it will be easy to clean and light for the spring.
I'd like to do a girl version with one button and a rounded bottom edge.
