I started knitting like 30 years ago. I still have hand-knitted dresses I made for my Barbie, and their design is not that bad!
I have always loved knitting but never got too good or an expert at it. Mainly because instead of following a pattern, I like doing things on my own or I start with highly complicated knitting projects, and well, it doesn’t always turn right…
Knitting takes a long time (at least it takes me a lot of time to accomplish a project), but I guess knitting is like everything, the more you knit, the better you get at it. Am I wrong?
A little bit less than a year ago, I decided to stick to a pattern; to do a simple knitting project and do a little size. So I started a sweater for my little boy based on the book “Tricots Intemporels pour bébés” (or if translated, something similar to Timeless knitting projects for babies) from Astrid Le Provost. I knew it would take me a long time to finish it so even though my baby was just about 6 months old, I decided to make an 18 months size knitted sweater. Well, about a year later I can finally said (after months of not touching the project) that I have finished my first knitted sweater! And it looks super cutie.
I have made some amendments to the pattern and added 2 colors instead of the monochrome color proposed.
Only 2 stitches have been used to make this sweater. I used wool yarn from Loveknitting.com
Please note this is an affiliated link. So if you decide to purchase any yarn from them, I’ll get a tiny commission that will allow me to continue knitting and creating good content for this blog. Thanks a million!
