When Max was born I knew there were a few things I wanted to knit for him. One was the Pocket Playsuit by C. Pettersen who is behind Ministrikk. It’s such a sweet pattern.
I used some DROPS Baby Merino that I had left in my stash, luckily I had enough to finish the little suit. Because I wanted to knit up stripes I had to improvise a little bit for the pockets and for top just before getting to the straps.
But I think it adds to the finished piece. I doubled the straps as I wanted to make sure that they would hold and be strong.
Since Max was only four months old when I was knitting this, it took me a little longer than it usually would, but I am very pleased with the end result.
And doesn’t Max look gorgeous in it?
