Baby Varsity Sweater

by fiber-musings

As I sit with my husband and watch Sunday football I am inspired to share a knitting project that I completed last year for dear college friends of ours. We attended countless football games with Mr & Mrs G., so when we found out that they were expecting their first child, I decided that I absolutely needed to make their baby girl some University of Cincinnati fan gear! I found this varsity sweater pattern on Craftsy and thought it was a cute vintage look for a little baby girl. This project was absolutely worth the $6 price tag! The pattern is no longer listed for sale on Craftsy but I have linked to the creator NHP Designs pattern store, so if you are interested perhaps you can reach out directly and make a purchase.

The pattern itself was great- it is a top down pattern and knit up very quickly. I used graph paper to chart out my “C-paw” (The University of Cincinnati logo on the left front), it took a few attempts but I’m thrilled with the end result. I finished this project up last year and didn’t hang on to my yarn info, but it was a washable worsted weight fiber from my favorite local yarn shop, “Yarnify!” (formally known as “Loopy Yarns”…)

This little sweater is perfect for football season- I hope this inspires you to take on a fun project for the little fan in your life!
