This is my first attempt at a baby sized sweater and my first real "made it up" pattern.  The frog is based on Keroppi (cause I needed a super cute frog).  It's for a friend who is expecting (we don't know itf it'll be a boy or girl yet!)  Since there wasn't a ton of stitches to do the intarsia I had to do a little embroidery on top to make it detailed.  The yarn is Yarn Bee Icelandic Jewels (except the white which was yarn I had laying around that had long ago lost it's label.  I plan to make booties to go with it.  The buttons I have for the booties are adorable froggies with googly eyes!
Cheers!

This is an awesome baby sweater. I especially like the little heart on the back.

Thanks guys!
Do you think it'll still be suitable if it turns out to be a girl?

Of course!!!

Course, I'm big into gender-neutral baby items.  So that may just be me!

Love the sweater!

So cute!  And I totally knew it was Keroppi before I even read about it!  Also, is your "model" Kipper by any chance??  If so, very cool!   Cool

Love it! It's nice for babies to have short sleeved sweaters too! And I love the heart on the back too.

The sweater is actually long sleeve but I had to scrunch it up on Kipper's arms so it didn't look like he was swimming in it.  That Kipper has been through a lot with me.  Back in another life when I managed a PBS store, he was my backroom friend who soaked up my frustrated tears during Christmas season (retail toy stores at Christmas are a complete nightmare) and made me laugh through many other days.  The day I quit I bought him and took him home.  He's been my pal ever since:)  He even talks with a British accent!

I can completely feel your pain of working in toy retail around Christmas...I did that for 4 years?  Maybe it was 5...  But I know how it goes.  What a great choice of bonding with Kipper, he's such a calming fellow!  Haha   Cheesy
