These adorable things just make me giggle. Who knew babies needed halter tops? I'm convinced now that every baby girl should have one of these. I have a friend with identical twin girls, so I set out to make two before their first birthday (April 11 - I'm way ahead of schedule).

As the title says, this is a Knitty pattern. This was my first time with a provisional cast-on and with an i-cord; both were reasonably easy once I got the hang of them. I could have finished each halter in one day if I set my mind to it. I didn't, so it took me about a week and a half to finish both. I used Blue Sky Cotten - one skein each for the 12-month size. Enjoy!

I just cast on for a katja last night...I'd say I'm about a third done, it's a very quick knit Smiley

I did the 12-month size and knit in the round, I love no-seam patterns!  Super easy knit, I'm delighted with the results!  This is a pre-blocked photo...the yarn is an alpaca blend, something I picked up cheap because of the un-even dye job, hopefully I'll have a modeled pic soon Smiley

Hey, look!  I just finished one too!  Only I put some eyelets in it.  I'd give you a modeled pic, but my friend's baby isn't due till June Sad

These all look fantastic! I love the colors you guys chose. I'm giving mine away next Saturday, so hopefully I will have some modeled pics in the next couple of weeks.  Smiley

ooohhh! aaahhh!

Love the eyelets!

I've got a ball of that orange alpaca the size of grapefruit and another friend with a baby girl due in a few weeks...I think there's some eyelets calling her name!

Modeled pics:

They aren't my girls, but I will take credit for contributing to their cuteness!
