Every Grandparent thinks that their little one is the cutest. I guess I’m no exception to that rule…
As a knitter, I’m always looking for something that I can make for my grandson, but let’s face it, sometimes it can be difficult to find the right project for a boy. I’m not really into the “babyish” outfits with animal ears or choo choo trains. His Mom and Dad like to dress him in little boy (not baby) fashions as well. I think this pattern fit the bill just right!
It’s a simple knit with a wonderful stitch pattern that not only looks good, but helps it to lay flat around the face.
The pattern was easy to follow. There are instructions to add pockets, but I chose to leave them off.
There is minimal seaming (always a good thing!).
Comfortable enough for a little boy who likes to climb!
The hood actually stays on his head!
I did use some creative blocking to get it to hold the shape I wanted though. I think this looks a little creepy, but it worked great.
I love the little point at the top. After all, he is just a little man. I don’t want to dress him like a complete adult!
I just hope he doesn’t out grow it too quickly!
You can find the pattern on Ravelry. It’s called “Latte Baby Coat”. Here is a link to my project notes: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Dona-C/latte-baby-coat
