Hey Everyone,

Yesterday I finished a sweater to give to my cousin for her daughter-to-be (Zoe, Anna, Samantha, or Bella, name to be determined).  Well, now I am without a project, and would love to make something for her sister's son.  I'd like to make a sweater for Brady.  I really like top down raglans, as that is what I made for her sister, but I am open to trying new things.  I want something that will look good on a little boy, cause brady is all man.

Thanks!
Kate

BTW, Brady is going to be a year old soon

There are some really cute ones on DROPS' website, like these:

The first sweater is exactly the style I am looking for.  I could really see my cousin Nicole dressing Brady in something like that.  I am not sure how I feel about the buttons on the neckline though.

Thanks!

The buttons on the neckline are a good idea for a baby sweater -- almost everyone underestimates how big a baby's head is (it's something like 1/4th of their size, whereas an adult's head is 1/7th their size) so that way Mom or Dad can still get the sweater over the baby's head even if the hole is too small.

yeah the more I thought about the buttons, the more I realized that they were a good idea.  Brady has the fattest little head I have ever seen.
