I made Joelle Hoverson's placket neck sweater for Milo back in the summer and I loved it! The pattern was so easy and quick to knit (it does come from last minute knitted gifts after all). It also introduced me to some new techniques, including knitting on circular needles, which is now by far my favourite way to knit.
So at when time was running out for all the holiday handknits I had promised myself I would make, I figured I'd revisit this for my youngest (and only) nephew.
I used sublime organic cotton, as he has fairly sensitive skin, I thought this would be the best bet and added stripes to the pattern. Adding the stripes meant a whole lot of weaving in at the end, which was fairly painful, but other wise all was well!
I'm afraid, it was so last minute that I didn't have time to photograph it properly, but I did get this one snap of him with my mum, whilst wearing it!
