622 Last Minute Baby (preemie - 6 months)

Well, the title says it all, doesn't it? This is a blindingly fast, really minimal-effort garment with long or cap/vest sleevelets that you could probably whip up in an evening-- and as usual from Cabin Fever, there's no seaming or finishing-- everything's built-in. There are short rows to shape the little V neck, but no wrapping to intimidate or confuse. Buttonholes are kept to only three. This is the kind of pure and elegant design that would look great in a variegated or hand-dyed yarn just as much as a solid, and can be as conservative or wild as your dreams for the baby. Sizing is controlled by the needle size you use; the instructions use only one set of numbers. (The 1824 Wool was an Aran weight, typically knitting to 18 stitches and 24 rows on a US8/5mm needle.)

(This is the bestselling Patternfish baby pattern from 2013--ed.)
