Baby knits

Two baby sets, the girl's vest is from Elizabeth Zimmermann's instructions, adjusted for a finer gauge. The yarn is Phildar folk in "Capucine" and "Persian". The booties are from an oldish German book, and the bonnet is knit without a pattern.
The boy's vest is from an old German instruction, knit sideways in a single piece. It finished quite small, and I think at that time knit baby clothes were perhaps not calculated to last as long as we expect them to do today with superwash wool etc. The yarn is Phildar Folk in "Edmonton".
La veste de fillette est d'après un patron d'Elizabeth Zimmermann, ajusté pour une laine plus fine, les instruction pour les chaussons viennent d'un livre allemand, et le bonnet est tricoté sans instructions. La laine est Phildar Folk "Capucine" et "Persan".
Le patron pour la veste de bébé-garçon vient d'un vieux livre allemand. La veste est tricoté de côté en une pièce en partant de l'avant. Elle est plus petit que les modeles d'aujourd'hui, probablement parce que les tricots ne durèrent pas très longtemps avant les laines lavables sans feutriner. Phildar Folk "Edmonton".

  1. If you lived closer I'd be parked at your front door, with knitting needles in hand, so you could teach me. They're beautiful.
