This is a free pattern from Wendy Bernard. A talented designer with a new book -- Custom Knits -- and great blog with fantastic patterns. Here is a free pattern available from the book!
If not for the ever-expanding belly -- today marks 6 months -- I'd make this one for myself. Oh well, I'll live vicariously thru all of you. Come and share your knitting.
Oh, and some yarn suggestions to help tempt the knitter, Blue Sky silk alpaca, Jade Sapphire 4 ply cashmere, karabella margrite just to name a few.
