Introducing Baby Bluejay
Today's big news is the launch of my newest design, Baby Bluejay--a charming hooded vest for little boys and girls with great texture and lots of special design features. You can read more about the specific techniques used on the pattern page. You can also access a video tutorial to help with the finishing technique here.
This pattern comes in four sizes to fit newborn through 24 months and can be knit in any worsted weight yarn. The sizes and yardages are estimated as follows (when knit to a gauge of 16 stitches and 23 rows = 4” in reverse stockinette with a single color)
0-6 month size (18”)--220 yards
6-12 month size (20”)--275 yards
12-18 month size (22”)--350 yards

There are many suggestions included for how to customize your sweater with variations for length, multiple colors and button arrangements, as well as instructions to omit the pompom detail if you so choose. Baby Bluejay is a versatile hooded vest and will keep your favorite littles warm and cozy all winter! I hope you'll pick up a copy and knit your own Baby Bluejay for a special little someone! They make fantastic gifts!
