This is a sweater I made for my niece from an old pattern booklet my grandma gave me...looks like the booklet is from the early sixties maybe. I updated it by making it in a sassy color instead of the white the pattern suggested. I also used buttons to close it, instead of a single ribbon tie. (What baby would be able to resist pulling out the bow and tangling the ribbon?)
Here is a closeup of the lace pattern, with a white thing inserted so you can see it better:
The yarn is Dale Baby Ull. Probably the thing I'm most proud of with this sweater is the finishing. You honestly can't see the sleeve seams from the outside--the lace pattern looks unbroken.
I'm going to get it sent off to my niece tomorrow before she gets too big to wear it!
