Before anyone gets too excited…. Yes. My son married a wonderful woman this past May, but this set was not crocheted with them in mind. Instead, there is another happy couple expecting their second daughter next month, who I am hoping will wear this sweet little hat and sweater when she heads home with her family.
The pattern, found on Ravelry, is called Aunt Jen’s Sweater and is a super-quick and easy project. I followed one of the modifications and added a picot edge to the bottom. The yarn was Paton’s Grace, 100% mercerized cotton, in Blush. Since the pattern creates a rather tiny sweater, I went up a size to fit a newborn. The size can easily be adjusted with heavier yarn and/or a larger hook. The folks at Ravelry offer many suggestions and lots of good advice.
If you need a gift in a hurry, Aunt Jen’s Sweater is a great choice!
