For years, my dad has suffered from chronic headaches. He went to many doctors, chiropractors, pain specialists, and more, anyone he could find to try to help, with little, short-term, or no relief.
Finally, a physical therapist has been able to help him!
She is expecting a baby in December, and I asked Dad if he'd like me to knit something for the baby. He chose the Baby Yoda Sweater: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/baby-yoda-sweater
I used KnitPicks Crayon boucle yarn in Lime: http://www.knitpicks.com/cfyarns/yarn_display.cfm?ID=5420121
The sweater went knitted up very easily, and I love the texture of the boucle. And it's so soft and light! The only thing I didn't like was weaving in the ends--the boucle made it tough for me to follow a thread.
The sweater has inner and outer ties to wrap around the baby, so it should fit for a long time (as far as baby clothes go, that is). :)
The pattern reminds me of the baby undershirts from long ago. I love the color you chose.
Glad your Dad is getting some relief. I love this sweater and his therapist is going to be thrilled with it.
i can just see baby Yoda and baby Robin Hood toddling through the woodlands in these so sweet.
That's adorable. GREAT color.
very nice love the colour,what a loverly gift
How very nice and lovely colour too. I remember years ago when baby vests were made in this way with ties.
What a delightful baby sweater!! It's a beautiful gift that will certainly be appreciated. Thank you for sharing the pattern, and I must say I like your color choice more than the color pictured with the pattern. Not sure I would have been tempted to try it, but now that I've seen your choice I would like to try one for our little one.
