O.K. so once I hatched the idea to change up another baby sweater, I HAD to make it immediately. Here's the original pattern. Not very "boy". So change the color to blue and the motif to hearts (four of them around the bottom - two on front and two on back) like this:
And it should yield a cute sweater. Only one problem. I've been working on this since yesterday. Charting hearts, swatching, and then creating the sweater. The gauge swatch lies. BIG TIME. Am I going to rip it out? Heck no! The baby just won't be able to wear it for a while. The chest is 25 inches!
Does anyone out there have a chart that gives chest measurements with approximate ages? I've searched the net to no avail. I'd like to know what age this sucker is going to fit!
Off to start the lace part of the pattern. With luck my obsession should yield a finished sweater by the end of the day.

Can't wait to see what you've changed it up to - the hearts and blue are great!

The very fact that you're posting on the obsession at 6 in the morning says something!

It's very cute! I'm impressed!
