Finished Project: Sweet Pea Sacque

December 8, 2007 by
Filed under: Knitting 

Project Specs:
Pattern: Sweet Pea by Knitting at KNoon
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino: 4 02, 1 101, 1 11
Needles: US 0, 1, 2, 3
Size: newborn
Pattern Alterations:
• jogless stripes: 11 rows green, 1 row brown, 3 rows white, 1 row brown.
• 1 band of reverse stockinette around middle
• reverse stockinette on cuffs and neckband instead of garter stitch
• picked up 44 stitches for each arm and decreased every 6 rows down the arm

Dealing with the shoulders and weaving in all those ends nearly drove me crazy. But I like the finished product.

The jogless stripes I tried were mostly effective. But I did have to do a little duplicate stitch on two of them to make them look better.

This is for my new niece Amelia. I hope it fits. She is a big baby, over 9 1/2 pounds and 22 inches long. Born a week early at home. I’m looking forward to seeing her in March.

  4. Oh I just finished a Sweet Pea, although it is a child’s cardigan instead. I love your pattern though, and the colors look so nice together.

  6. CUUUUTE. I’m doing the same pattern right now, though in the boring same yarn as the sample in the picture. Actually it’s still really nice, just not as colorful (and that bottom part is BOOOORING to knit).

    Anyway… I have a question about the neck edging. Is it all stockingette (4 rows) or is it garter stitch. I’m finding the instructions to be slightly vague in some places.
