Baby Romper

Tim and I just bought tickets to head to Sydney, Australia at the end of August to meet up with Amy, Adam and baby Alex (yay!).

I had to come bearing gifts, and since baby Alex probably can't drink Indonesian coffee or appreciate a nice batik yet, I decided to knit him something comfy (in addition to the cute grandpa sweater I made him a few weeks ago)...  
 

Pretty cute!  I like how big the bottom looks to accommodate diaper butt.  

I used this free pattern, which was quite easy (although I had to wing it a bit on the legs due to my continuing fear of double-pointed needles).  I made the bib a bit wider (about 4 stitches on each side), but otherwise stuck with the pattern.  Used Berroco Comfort yarn.

  1. I could try to get you over your fear of DPNs the next time I see you, if you'd like.

    I bet you're excited about Australia!

    1. That would be great!

      We are super excited about Australia... a little bit of the western world would be welcome about now.

      Hope all is well with you guys!!

  2. This is one of the top 5 cutest things I have ever seen in my life. Could you maybe make an Amy-sized version so they can dress to match?
