New Yarn + Store Sample: Seedling, Ribbed Baby Jacket April 4, 2012 – Posted in: New in Store, Project Ideas

Seedling from Classic Elite Yarns

Seedling from Classic Elite Yarns is a machine washable organic cotton in both solid and handpainted colors. It has the same wonderful texture and softness as Sprout (also in stock) but in a lighter weight (4½ sts/inch on US 7 (4.5 mm) needles).  This yarn has been in the store for a few weeks now and, while we have lots of ideas for summer tank tops and sweaters, we also think this is an ideal choice for all baby and children’s garments. The happy collection of Seedling colourways can be viewed on the CEY website here.

Ribbed Baby Jacket by Debbie Bliss

We decided to knit the Ribbed Baby Jacket by Debbie Bliss to give customers a sense of Seedling’s softness and the effect of the handpainted variegation.  This is a sweet unisex baby sweater worked flat in one piece. Stitches are then picked up to work a wide ribbed lapel. Easy-peasy. Pattern available for free on Ravelry in sizes 0-3 months through 12-24 months.
