Baby jumper “McDreamy” by Drops

I am happy to present one of my first projects: baby jumper made for my son. I followed Drops pattern “McDreamy” available here.

I used cheap baby soft yarn available in my local shop (like the one here) as I was not sure of the outcome of the pattern. It came out really lovely, so if I ever knit this again I will definitely go for high quality cashmere merino, like this.

 

 

 

The baby jumper has textured pattern and raglan sleeve. It is done from bottom to top. As I don’t enjoy sewing finished pieces I used circular needles for body and sleeves. It was a bit tricky joining it all together and working through yolk, it was challenging my patience every minute, but it was all worth it. I had only small sewing to do under arms. To finish, I used wooden painted buttons, ordered from here. I absolutely love these buttons and use them whenever I can as they come in different patterns and colors.

What do you think of this jumper? Do I get thumbs up?

When it comes to yarns, anything I can put my hands on will finally make a way to my hooks and needles. I like to experiment a lot and notoriously run four or five projects at the same time - but that's part of the fun!
