Baby Man goes to a school that requires uniforms. Thankfully, the rules are very easy to follow: white and navy in any combination. But you would be surprised how hard it is to find a plain, long-sleeved white polo-style shirt this time of year. Good thing I can knit and make tops for my long-armed, super skinny little man.
The pattern is Spacer, from Katya Frankel’s excellent book Boys’ Knits (link to Amazon, or available from Cooperative Press here). If you knit for boys, you really do need this book. The patterns are excellent, stylish and many feature sci-fi inspired names (Deckard, Trantor, Ryker, etc.). The next one I tackle will probably be Dax. (All links are to Ravelry.)
Anyway! The yarn is Knit Picks Comfy Worsted in colourway Planetarium, which is a navy blue. It is very soft, and pretty nice to work with. The pattern itself was easy to follow, and resulted in a sweater that looks great on the little man. I love how the cabling is only on part of the front and on one sleeve. It looks really interesting, in a good way. Once it is washed and blocked, I will very content to send him to school in it.
