rainbow surprise

A classic, newborn sweater so tiny it seems impossible to fit anyone but, yes it can. The surprise is in its construction. I have knit this once before in gray alpaca sized up for a toddler with worsted weight yarn. I had really enjoyed making it and seeing it on my daughter. This one is knit with fingering yarn... so many more stitches. A lot of people knit this piece in variegated or striped yarn which is really not my thing but I thought I'd try it to see how the stripes worked out and I sort of like the ethnic feel to it.

The silliness factor really can only be pulled off by a tiny human.
