Two little balls of Rowan Cotton Glace

Have you ever seen Rowan Cotton Glace? It comes in the cutest, tiniest 50-gram balls, barely a handful!

I didn't think there was any way I could eke out a baby sweater, even a tiny one, using 2 skeins of yarn.

But somehow it happened! Granted, this is a truly tiny sweater, sized 0-3 months, with an open and deep neckline... But still: it has a frilly edge, and full length sleeves! I'm amazed! Let's see if I can make another using a pink and burgundy skein. It's stripey time!

Details of the sweater above to come: I first need to block it and then add a ribbon.

ll this pink! Does this mean we are expecting a little girl?

This is SO sweet! Can't wait for the details!!!

The little sweater is so adorable. I love the tiny balls of yarn!

Very Very cute, but am confused. Looks like you knit only one color, but two different balls shown. Did you have two of each color, or is my monitor playing tricks with me?

BTW, I absolutely squealed when I ready your news about baby grump/sweetness in the offering. I've read everything you've written and following your journey and am a better knitter for it. Thank you for sharing so much (I'll stop babbling now, promise)

Congratulations on your bundle of joy to be! Love the little sweater, it is so sweet. :)

Adorei o casaquinho... a cor é linda:)



There is nothing like knitting with cotton, it has such stitch definition and nothing feels like cotton.

I have 4 skeins of purple in my stash, so I will definitely have to keep this in mind. I have never found something to knit the yarn into (I'm probably trying to knit it too tightly, because I find it awfully hard on my hands).

Cute! I love how satisfying baby knits are!

Cute sweater. It's always amazing how little yarn and little time you need to make a sweater (when it's for an infant!).

Very cute sweater! I think it will look great in stripes.

They're so tiny and cute! So is the little sweater! Look forward to seeing the stripey version!

That is adorable! Amazing how far a little goes.

i have two balls exactly that i would love to use to make this! pattern specs PLEASE! its so cute! thank you!

Adorable! Glace really does go a long way, it's quite amazing. How did you get a 1-color sweater out of 2 different colors of yarn?

Isn't this the cutest little thing...
