Knitted baby jacket

I used the Garter Stitch baby jacket pattern to make this and am more than happy with the results. It is warm, soft and cuddly. I bought the toggles in Spotlight. It is homespun wool and it was good to have enough wool I had spun myself to make a garment. It is made from light and dark ram's wool, white merino wool and light and dark alpaca wool. I had to spin some extra dark alpaca which is a lovely chocolate colour and dark ram's wool for the hood. I love the look of this jacket. Knitting it in once piece, except for the hood which is knitted on last was an interesting challenge. You have to make sure you get the left side attached the right way round and then knit the last sleeve the right side especially if you are doing stripes!
