My Little Coffee Bean baby sweater was one of my very first designs, published back in 2009 (maybe you’ve knit it before?!). Recently my good friend Karen, who is also my talented technical editor, knit up the above version of this design but tweaked it just a little bit by adding a third color. This third color is used for all of the ribbing and I just love the look of it! She also knit up a little hat to go with it – how cute is it??
We worked together to write up a pattern for it and it’s now available as a free download here on my site. It’s written for either a 3-color version (like above), or a 2-color version to match the original Little Coffee Bean pattern. It’s also written for 2 sizes – either 0-6 months or 6-12 months. I hope you enjoy it!! Click here to view the pattern details and to download your free copy.
And if you are interested in the yarn/colors used in the samples above, Karen used Berroco Vintage in the following colors: Grapefruit, Buttercream & Oats.
