Here's a baby DIY I cast on in april. And finished in october lol. It lay almost finished for a while when I gathered energy for figuring out the finishing touches. I intended this for my niece lil G since she was the only one around at that time :P Then I was too slow and she outgrew it before it was even finished. But fear not because my nephew entered the world and I got it ready for his visit. Unfortunately lil A is a bit bigger than his cousin and it was too small for him as well! Ah well, it's on hold for the next baby to grace our family :)
Tadah! The pattern was originally an icelandic one called Samfestingur that my mom translated for me (yes she knows everything). I then modified it so I could knit it in the round and with raglan sleeves. Because I löööv me some raglan! ;) The yarn is cotton from various sources and a tiny amount of bamboo. I bought the buttons new (oh my!) since I didn't have any fitting ones at home. I did the size 3-6 months (if I'm not totally mistaken).
I'm really pleased with this one so it was too bad neither kiddo could wear it... Since I do like squares I'm happy with the pattern, which was also effortless to make but makes it all the more interesting :)
