I was asked by some biker friends to make thier baby girl some 'baby biker knitted stuff that wasn't pink' for when we all went on holiday together, and this was the result.

It has a short pirate style moss stitch placket on the front, with enamel skull buttons and those flames, well, lets say it was a labour of love!!

The flames pattern is a slightly modified version of the one by 'bikerchicknits'.

They were thrilled, and it only got finished on day 3 of our holiday!!!  Roll Eyes


Oh, she also got this hat a modded 1960's pattern...  Grin

Do you mind linking to the pattern? I love this and can rarely find knits that are punkish.

That just kicks @$$!  And puts my dainty little girly-girl baby sweaters to shame!!  If you haven't sold that pattern into the thousands...I'd be surprised...if that was your intentions, that is.  Great job...very impressive!
Goin' down as my first 'this rocks'!!!

I love it!  You should update with some photos of it being worn.  I would definitely put my kiddos in one of those.

Wow! Awesome! Not your average baby sweater, that's for sure.  If I had kids, they would totally rock this! Thanks for sharing!

Here is the link to the 'flames' chart I found online.
The cardie pattern is just a modded normal baby cardie, I just added the short moss stitch placket for the buttons/buttonholes and sewed them on after (the fronts knit up quicker too, if you don't have to count buttonholes)  Wink
