My Baby Sophisticate sweater is a "free" on line pattern by designer, Linden Heflin. It is a charming, simple and quick top down design that doesn't require any seaming. When knit in a Cascade 220 Superwash brown tweed and closed with dark brown leather buttons you truly have a sophisticated little cardigan.
Now remember I said I wanted to knit a set. So with the completion of the sweater, the hunt was then on for the accompanying hat. I chose The Basic Rolled Brim Hat by Joanne Turcotte. This wonderful little hat was found in my book, Knitting for Peace ( a fabulous book full of great patterns and articles on knitting for peace). I knit the size small on # 8 needles and worked to 4" instead of 6" before beginning the decreases.
This is a totally awesome and handsome set for any special little boy. Not only do I love it, but my DH really really L.O.V.E.S it....and that is a major accomplishment.
