Take Me Home Knit Baby Sweater

Posted by luvstakwilt (My Page) on

I am looking for a pattern that was called "Take Me Home" baby sweater. My Mother-in-law made two for my children almost 40 years ago. The pattern was from a company in Malden, MA or that area. It was just the right size for a 6-9 pound baby to come home in and not look lost! The one she made for my children had a small collar and crochet around the edge of at least the collar and possible down the
front.

I have a baby shower to go to on July 12 and would love to make a sweater that will fit a newborn. It doesn't have to be exactly this pattern and I really don't care if it has a collar (gets in the way) but I do want it to have buttons and no ribbons (get in the baby's face)

If anyone has a pattern that will fit this description or size I would love to have a copy of your pattern.

Thank you in advance for any help you can give me with this project.

Often I've used a small sized pattern and made it in very fine yarn....this generally will turn out a very small sweater. I have a pattern called Knitted Seamless Raglans, 9 mo to size 50 that I've used..it's by leisure Arts. However, I'd think any small pattern would do. If it doesn't appear to be going to be as small as you want it, start over with smaller needles...there's so little actual knitting in these little garments that you can afford to start over any number of times. This pattern starts at the neck and works down, which is good, as you can gauge if it'll be small enough pretty easily.

I made a small Elizabeth Zimmerman's Baby Surprise Jacket that came out in small using sport weight yarn. The sleeves need to be made a little longer before you sew them up. You can find her pattern by ordering it online (Google it) or in some of her books. Try the library.

I have the pattern for the Take Me Home Sweater, but I seem to be having a tough time making it come out right. I had the original pattern and tried to put it in a word document and must have messed it up. Could you please send me a copy of it? The original must be in my mother's stash somewhere. Being 82 she forgets where things are. I just took out the pattern as we know someone having twins and the shower will be in December so thought I'd better start the sweaters. Thanks
