Zen Baby Sweater

Completed Sweater

Sweater Details

Here are some pictures of a baby sweater knit by Gale Mead out of some of my "Gentle Breeze" handspun Merino yarn. It was fun to work with her on this project as she needed more yarn to finish up the sleeves so I quickly spun up some more.

The pattern used is "Helena," a free pattern from Knitty. Gale notes that she changed some of the patterning. For all you Ravelry users, you can read more about her sweater Here.

I love how this sweater turned out--especially the slight striping of the yarn on the sleeves. I spun the handpainted roving so it would have just a subtle striping effect.

Gale, for sharing your beautiful project with us!
