Jesse’s 5 hour baby sweater Version 2

The 5 hour baby sweater is adorable and can be found at this link: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/baby-boy-5-hour-sweater

Now depending how fast you knit, it could be done in 5 hours but really, take your time.  This is knitted top-down, seamless and the sleeves are knitted in the round.

I emailed Gail Bable asking whether it will be okay for me to share my version of the pattern with others as i know how “tight” designers are about copyright issues etc. And she blew me away when she said that yes i can share it and she thought that it was cute!

So here is my other version of it and i hope you will all like it. I put in more rows between the two garter rows that create the ridges in the yoke.

So far, I’m the only one that has made this and if you do, please link all your posts to my blog and quote this page as reference please.
