SOPHIE Baby Cardigan Jacket



SOPHIE Baby Cardigan Jacket

SOPHIE Baby Cardigan Jacket - knitted by Jennie Walls


Jennie Walls – a member of my facebook group - adapted one of my baby jacket patterns
by adding a different stitch pattern to the lower half.

I think it is so pretty – and I thought some of you might like to make it too.

Thank you very much Jennie for sharing – and for the name too – I love that you suggested calling it after your granddaughter 😊

  1. A Funny but True story. When my Cousin became pregnant with her 1st, I was 17, I taught myself how to knit and spent the entire 9 months knitting a pretty Lacy Patterned Scalloped Edge Matinée Jacket, Bonnet & Bootees set in Soft White Baby Fine wool. It was a real Labour of Love (& Sweat & Tears lol) I knitted what was called 1st size having visions of her carrying the baby home from hospital in it. She was taken in because the baby refused to be born and when her Daughter arrived she was a whopping 10lb 14oz and went straight into 6 month old baby clothes. Lol I cried so hard for a week, we donated it to the Preemie unit on account of they were probably the only babies tiny enough for this flamin' thing. Hope it brings you a smile. ��

  2. I've had several baby things I knitted be too large for newborns. The recipients waited too long to use them and they never got used. :-(
