In the For You February way, I whipped up some knit shirts for my kiddo even though I have been really sick with the flu. He is just adorable in this Valentine themed hearts and arrows knit shirt!
My little studfinder. So cute. So sick. The little man gave me this horrible flu which made me crazy-think I could measure him accurately and in a double-plus-good way, whip out a bunch of shirts in different fabrics and triple his wardrobe in a few evenings. Oh how I was wrong.
Instead I measured his tiny little chest at 22″ circumference and never thought twice about it. Now I have a few shirts he will wear, but not until next year.
The kid looks darn adorable, even if it’s too big. I am also really proud of its construction. I had just enough fabric to make this one shirt, in size 3t. I was particular about the heart placement, and the results came out splendid! The hearts travel down each sleeve and align directly along his center.
The pattern alignment is slightly difficult to see, as this thermal knit is far too big for my little man. However that doesn’t stop my funny valentine from finding the snickerdoodles we made for his poppa as a special V-Day treat.
I just love Ottobre patterns, and this one is classic. Seriously. The patterns are clean, the style is modern, the directions are sparse and easy to follow. Just love love love them.
Also, I have something important to announce! The winner of the baby hat, picked by the ever fabulous and famous random number generator is… 5!
natureandneedles This is OH SO CUTE! I didn’t know you made hats! Kenzie loves wearing them apparently.
Congratulations to Kenzie! New owner of a cute little hat, may it keep your little head warm.
Thank you to everyone who commented or entered! If you want a hat of your own, I am happy to take orders for custom hats. Just send me a note and we can discuss the details.
