HI all,
I recently saw a video tutorial of how to make a baby sweater using just 2 hexagons. I fell in love with that method and had to make one . Here it is ...

I made this with lustresheen as its very hot here for baby to wear anything made with yarn. This is for my friend's sister who had a baby girl recently.

Sorry forgot to mention where I saw the tutorial.. http://br.youtube.co...h?v=qlYhLA2oL-0 Its in 4 parts. the language is portugese but the visual is really great

What a great sweater, you did a beautiful job! :clap Thank you for posting the link. I just sat through the 4 videos, and they were amazing. You can really figure it out. I used the pause a lot to help count stitches and a little bit of my high school Spanish came back, which really helped. I haven't used it in 40 years! That was a very interesting stitch she finished it off with. I bookmarked the link and may give it a try. Thanks again. :hook

I love it, but after sitting through the first one theres' no way i could made it with out the directions in english or writen. Which is funny cause I'm left handed and I'm used to watching people do something and then figuring out how to do it left handed. It looks great.
