a knitted baby shrug

Can't help but continue to spoil my friend's new baby Esther Mae. Such a cutie!

I decided to knit up this adorable wee shrug to be worn throughout the holiday season with sweet little party dresses. And I think it would look equally cute with jeans and a t-shirt! Nice and versatile. Just a little eyelet detail on the sleeves, and that's it, no fuss!

I used the free "Confection"pattern off of Ravelry, and used one skein of lovely green label Tanis Fiber Arts yarn in natural. This yarn is so wonderfully soft, and has the added bonus of being machine washable, important for baby items!

The shrug was finished in only a couple days while at the lake, and I had enough left over to make a matching hat, a pattern I made up myself using the eyelet detail of the shrug. Simple and cute! I will share the pattern with you in a few sizes in an upcoming post.

I will be sending this along to Esther Mae along with a little fancy dress :)

Gorgeous Kristie. That little baby is going to be the best dressed baby around.

You made this in two days? Good grief. It would take me that long to read the pattern and cast on!

That's so lovely! I'm just learning to knit and my limit at the moment is the honey cowl from Madelinetosh - round and round in circles!

Love love love this shrug- sooooo cute!! Need to make one for my new baby cousin, (after I finish her quilt of course!!)

Oh, I love love love that shrug! I have made a few sewn ones, but there is something about a knitted one that is just that much cuter!
