Grandma’s Littlest…

Grandma's Littlest TwoHere’s my two littlest Grandchildren, photographed so beautifully by their Auntie Jennifer of The Shoot Shoppe.

Baby brother is scheduled to make an appearance in December, (though I can’t imagine how Mom will hold out that long!). Grandma is knitting furiously just in case the littlest surprises us.

Knitted Mossy Baby Jacket

This is from the Mossy Jacket pattern, free from F.Pea. I made mine in the 6 month size with Family Roots Fibers Willow Merino in the First Beach colorway, and Rowan Cashsoft dk in the color Donkey. This is one of my favorite baby sweaters I’ve ever made. The loose gauge makes the sweater very stretchy, which is sure going to come in handy when you have to guide tiny little hands through little sleeves.

Close Up of Mossy Knitted Baby Sweater

Mossy Knitted Baby Jacket Pattern Close Up I love the neck design, which buttons low, without being tight or binding in the neck area. I made my sleeves extra long to grow with the baby for a few months. There’s no harm in cuffing them up that first month or so. In fact, the reverse stockinette is kind of interesting looking in the variegated colors.

Making baby things makes me think about what a joy it is to be a Grandma. I’m not responsible for anything except fun – and that I can handle.

      Thank you Sue! It was one of those happy coincidences that I actually had a perfect coordinating color in my stash. So rarely happens…

    Where can I find the pattern for this cute sweater. My first grand-daughter is due in August and I hope to make her something cosy for the fall and winter. This looks like a comfortable little sweater.

      Hi Jackie! I’m so glad you brought my attention to this. I swear I used to have the pattern name in the blog post! I added it in again and here it is: The Mossy Jacket – a free pattern from the F.Pea blog. She has alot of other great stuff there too!
