Leaf Pattern Sweater Set







Here is the pattern from Designs by Jeannine
#41 her Leaf Pattern Sweater Set, oh what fun to knit! And the pattern is written for preemie, newborn or 3-6 months. Preemie requires fingering or baby yarn, newborn- sport weight , 3-6 months is worsted weight.
Which is what I made using Red Heart TLC Lustre from the stash, the shade is true in the first 2 top photos, a nice bright lavendar shade. To me it looks like the color of lilacs!
Top down with all garter stitch except for lacey leaf. And there is an option to make the bonnet (which I made with crochet ties) or a skull cap. I will have to see if I have a bootie pattern that would compliment the set.

I am working on some petal dishcloths in between, I'll get a picture of those and post soon.

Time to put the sneakers on and go for a walk!
