Finished Baby Sweater
I had some self-induced problems with this one b/c, thinking I was SO smart, I decided to do it in stockinette instead of garter stitch. Near the end, a wee little voice at the back of my head said, “But stockinette stitches aren’t the same height as garter stitches. Won’t that throw it off-kilter?” When I was half-way done with seaming the second shoulder, I realized that the little voice had actually been The Voice of Reason. OOOooops! I ever-so-carefully undid the shoulder seams and added sort of a garter stitch shoulder saddle (for lack of anything better to call it), and it worked out. Whew! I was cutting it close, though; I ended up with only eight grams of yarn (in this case, 36. yards) left.
My other modification to the pattern was that I extended the length of the sleeves after the body was knit (but before I added the shoulder saddle).
