FO Friday: Scalloped Lace Baby Sweater

Scalloped Lace Baby Sweater

Pattern:

My own

Yarn:

Knit One Crochet Too Ty-Dy Cotton, Colorway# 332

Notes:

I adore the way this sweater turned out! The scalloped lace pattern was perfect for this yarn, as the color changes really show off the scallops. I have already bought yarn to make another one, this one white with the scallops in various bright colors.

This is a gift for my son’s teacher. She had a baby right before the start of the school year. Her husband got a new job, and she is moving out of state as soon as the school year ends. I wanted to give her something to remember us and know how much she will be missed!

Time to complete:

A little bit over two months, including numerous frogs and the time it spent in Time Out. 🙂

  1. Gorgeous!! and just in time for the end of school! 🙂

    How did you fix that problem with the front ribbing?

    • I left it as is. I ended up re-doing the buttonhole side instead (the buttons were too far apart and I zoned out at one point, so they weren’t equally spaced, either. The new buttonhole fell exactly over my goof, so I sewed a button over it and declared it fixed. 😉

      I probably would have had to fix it if it was something for me, but since I had a deadline (today!) to finish it, I just sucked it up and ignored it.
