Very Very Sneaky

Posted by 2ton Inspired on July 9, 2008

A winter baby needs winter clothing! Here’s the latest addition to the baby knits.

When I came across NeedleNoodles.com (author of Creepy Cute Crochet) I found a cross stitch chart for a ninja. I was unsure what I’d use it for I saved the chart anyway and I’m glad I did!  I was going through my stash wondering what I’d make next and picked up the black and cream yarn that my cousin had given me and thought they’d make a cute two toned color sweater. A Debbie Bliss Raglan sweater (from The Baby Knits book) to be exact. As I pictured the sweater in my head the image of the ninja popped up and I knew I had found my next FO.

I modified the sweater a little bit by adding a moss stitch border to the bottom, sleeves, and neck. Having made the sweater before I wasn’t fond of the rolled edges. Somehow it just looked incomplete. I also modified the chart to be large enough to fit on the center of the sweater. I used the duplicate stitch to  add him on (I’ve dubbed the ninja a he). It wasn’t so bad but it was a pain to take out stitches when I made a mistake! Overall I think he looks pretty darn cute.
