A Trellis For Baby

I promised you knitting and I always keep my promises. Here we have a finished baby sweater. Namely, Trellis.


Remember my dear friend Lois? She of the “of course we can do that” fame? This is for her newest grandchild on the way. The baby is predicted to be a boy and I just had to knit him an aran style sweater.


With leather buttons. It’s so manly – in a baby sort of way.


The yarn is Knitpicks Superwash Merino Worsted weight. It’s very soft and smooshy and will be warm and cuddly next winter. Hopefully the sweater and baby will match in size when the weather is appropriate for wool.

That’s a crap shoot, though, and we all know it.

  1. My mom knit that last year (with a lot of help and encouragement!) for my brother’s grandson — her great-grandson! It’s such an adorable sweater!

  2. Adorable! But I do think you choice of words – crap shoot – in a post about a baby sweater, and considering the sweater is white, is just too funny!!

  3. The Trellis is so cute. Mine is still sitting half finished in the UFO pile. Dont know when I will pull it out again but I love your color choice and buttons.

  4. I think you were working on that when I was there. It came out beautifully!

  5. Love that sweater! Hopefully, if anything other than a perfect fit this winter, it’ll be a little bit big — I’m a big fan of the rolled-up sleeve.
    ; )

  6. Love the sweater….already too small in the largest size to dare making it for my newest grandson. He’s the one who wore my Owl sweater for exactly two weeks, you might recall. I just sent version #2, size 2, down to Baltimore and they laughed. By the time Baltimore is cool enough for a wool sweater, he’ll be out of this one. Crapshoot, indeed. Maybe I should just concentrate on making sweaters for the older kids (who don’t grow as fast) and hope they get passed down.

  7. I made one of those for Olivia with almost those exact same buttons! So cute! Hopefully Rachel’s three kids don’t abuse it too badly and my baby can wear it too.

  8. I’m sure it will fit if he’s still ‘on the way’. It’s cool here even in Sept. The cardi is absolutely adorable!

  9. Gorgeous!! I want one in my size!

    BTW, what’s the name and brand of the orange color in your bathroom?? It’s summer, which means it’s house project time. Thanks! 🙂

  10. It’s beautiful! And as for the crap shoot… I say the sweater is knitted and can stretch out a bit, and the kid can wear it in summer… at least to get a photo shoot out of it.

  11. it’s adorable — I love the classic combo of yarn and buttons. You know, every time I see one of these I love it. Am waiting for the grownup version so I can have one too…
