Two special little ladies were born this winter, so two special little handknits were most definitely in order.
After becoming mildly obsessed with searching for the perfect baby girl sweater, I came across this crochet "recipe". It was perfect; simple yet tasteful, feminine yet not too girly-girl. I crocheted the pattern "as is" for Elsie since she lives up here in frigid New England, but I left Natalie's sleeveless as she lives in North Carolina. I figured she could wear a long sleeved onesie under hers on the colder days and then get some more wear out of it when it warms up. Design-wise, I love it both ways. These tiny sweaters were such a pleasure to crochet and this has definitely become my new go-to pattern for baby girls.
(and can I just say, I think these two just have the LOVELIEST of names.)
