Baby Sweater for Joshua

I knit Joshua a baby sweater for Christmas. I started it right after he was born, put it down for a while, and picked it up again knowing the size I choose would fit when he was about one year old.  I finished it and it fit!

Pattern: Rufus Textured Cardigan by Kristen Rengren  (From the book Vintage Baby Knits)
Yarn: Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash in Celery Green
Needle size: US4 & US5

I altered the pattern a little so there would be less seaming at the end. I knit the button bands with the front panels instead of knitting them in two pieces and seaming. The pattern called for a whole lot of seaming at the end, which I did and groaned about... but the results were really great, so I shouldn't have complained.

Here are the pictures of Mr. Joshua in his new sweater.
