I wanted to design something top-down with minimal seams because I don't like bulky sleeve seems on baby stuff, and I had not yet seen a bolero baby pattern that was raglan style. I am so pleased, I took these pics just yesterday.



I pinned it shut with a saftey pin, I am not sure how I want to handle the button, I was thinking MAYBE a little wooden toggle and a crochet loop.







Its Oxford Kitchen Yarns, British BFL. It's really nice to knit with. 4.5 stitches per inch on size 6.

Yahoo!! I am so pleased!

absolutely adorable.  a crocheted loop and a yarn knot button would be a cute closure on it.  did you make up the pattern?  will you share?

that child is adorable and wears it well (:
I say go for the wooden toggle and a crocheted loop! I think it'd look awesome.

I love this!  I agree about seams being bulky on a baby, that's why I love knitting top down in one piece and sleeves on dpns!  This looks like a great simple pattern.  Cute for a boy or girl!  Great job!

That's so sweet!  Very nice colour choice.
I think a toggle would do very well.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

I agree with everyone else - gorgeous! (the bub and the bolero!)
I would also love to know if you think you might share the pattern? I've a few babies popped/ing out around me and this would be lovely...

Did a little looking and I found it up on Ravelry. It's def. going on my to do list. So pretty. And I love the colours.

I made a shawl collar cardi for DD almost a year ago and still haven't figured out a way to close it, I like the toggle idea, I'm going to have to borrow that.
