Sunshine Blossom Sweater for Dhruvie

I did manage to finish one knitted sweater while on maternity leave and it was this pretty little sweater for Dhruvie. I had bought this yarn almost a year before I was pregnant and it just seemed like the right one to use for this project. I finished the sweater in February this year so Dhruv wore it for just the beginning of spring.

People who are following this blog regularly would know that I prefer crochet to knitting and most of my posts are crocheted. I did want to knit this one though because I thought that knitted garments do have a unique charm and this pretty yarn would be shown to best advantage using knitting.

Pattern Used: Hayfield Blossom Chunky 4677
Yarn Used:Sirdar Hayfield Blossom Chunky in  Pretty Primrose
When I started the sweater by just knitting the rib I realised what a joy to knit with this yarn is.
The pattern was relatively straight forward. I did mess up the front left and had to redo that from scratch but thats just because I am not very comfortable with knitting. I do have around a ball and a half left of this yarn and now that Dhruv is outgrowing this sweater I am almost tempted to unravel the whole thing and redo a crochet jumper for him. He does love wearing this sweater. A few days back he pulled it out of the drawer and just gave it a hug!
