Hand Dyed Sock Yarn for Baby Sweaters

I finally decided to make my first knitted sweater and decided to make my first attempt on a smaller scale. I used some of my hand dyed sock yarn (Joker’s Wild purple and green colorway) and the Scrappy Socky Stripey Cardi which is a free pattern from f.pea. I didn’t have any  stripey sock yarn to use up but thought this would be a good time to use the hand dyed variegated yarn since I rarely get to keep my own yarns to use!

I enjoyed the pattern but I left out the garter stitch on the top of the sleeve to make more of a defined yolk. I made mine in size 12 month and added two pretty little buttons for a special little girl.

With my leftovers I made a pair of matching leggies from the free pattern Easy Baby Leg Warmers published at Grad School Knitter.
