pull gaspard-2Yep, this Pull Gaspard is not for Zooey, but I couldn’t resist seeing it on a baby since she’s the right size. I made the 6 month size, but I added a bit more length overall and my gauge was a teensy bit larger. I’m hoping it fits the intended baby during her 6-10 month chunk of babyhood, right about next October-February . Other than that I made no changes to the pattern. It was a fun and quick knit.

pull gaspard-4I’m not sure I would really call Cascade 22o Superwash a DK weight, as it’s classified on Ravelry. It seemed a wee bit heavy for the project, but I really wanted to put this yarn to this pattern. I will be making one for Zooey in a bright orange. I may go up a needle size for everything but the garter stitch kangaroo pocket. That seems like it would benefit from a fairly firm piece of knitting.

pull gaspardI really like the way the crochet edging looks, but it was my least favorite part of the sweater. I think it’s crucial to have the finished look on the pocket and collar, but it felt like it took ages to do each row.

pull gaspard-3This sweater should be toasty warm for its intended recipient. I like to imagine she’ll keep something treasured in that pocket.

pull gaspard-5I love this expression on Zooey’s face. It’s like she’s thinking, “What do you mean this sweater isn’t for me?”
