Baby Gift

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.
