Pink Bow Sweater

Pink Bow Sweater

Knit from a free internet pattern, in one piece from back to fronts using Bernat Satin yarn in Sea Shell pink, on 5mm needles. Fairly quick and easy to knit. Pattern has an error - it doesn't seem to tell you to knit 5 stitches of garter at each cuff of the sleeve. Do it anyway! It makes a terrific cuff.

I won't use this yarn again for this sweater. It's baby soft without a doubt, but it's limpness bothers me. The sweater is very floppy! Still, I think silky softness and limpness go together in acrylic, and there's not much one can do about it.

All in all this made for a very inexpensive, very sweet and very soft baby gift.
