  • Project Details


    I used Knitpicks Swish DK yarn in colors twilight (4 balls), white (1 ball) and Green Tea Heather (1 ball). This is a well written pattern, seamless top down. The author provides directions for making with a steek and without a steek. Yay. I don't steek. There is a bonnet pattern available, but I used my own pattern. On the sleeves, I crossed the white yarn underneath the blue after each stitch to prevent the baby's fingers from getting snagged in the floats. This was a fun set to knit.
