I had planned to knit a sweater and hat for him but know how hard it is to find something to fit a little baby so I searched Ravelry for a preemie infant sweater pattern. I found a simple raglan sweater pattern and started knitting last night. It's been a fast knit. I have the sleeves to finish and buttons to attach, then to knit up the hat.
Here's what I have so far. I chose matching puppy dog buttons. It's being modeled by my 20 inch Berenger baby doll. The doll is larger than the baby so I know the sweater will fit. The doll was a thrift store find for fifty cents a few years ago. Does anyone know how to get stains out of a cloth baby doll? I don't want to throw it in the washer.
