Teeny tiny baby sweater

[advertisement: unpaid links]

I have finished a baby sweater for a former schoolmate of mine who is going to have her first baby within the next two weeks. The pattern used is Towpath Henley, which I  enjoyed very much. Sadly, the instructions for the placket and buttonhole band were not very useful for me as both sides curled a lot before I reduced the picked up stitches by 20%.

The sweater is knit from Zauberwiese‘s 100% Neuseeland Merino, a very good choice for the pattern. It looks beautiful even it is knit up quite loosely, the stitch definition is great and it feels perfectly soft for baby skin. Only 50g were enough for the smallest size.
