Nicest Kids In Town Sweater

About The Project

Well, babies don’t jog. My next thought was a project name including the word “walk.” Wait! Babies don’t walk either. I ended up with Nicest Kids In Town, sung by James Marsden, from Hairspray 2007 Original Soundtrack.

About The Pattern

Infant Jogging Suit by Kim Guzman

Very simple. Does require the use of two different hook sizes: US G for ribbing, US H for body. I Had a question about one thing and the designer replied to me super fast in my opinion – the same day!

Once again, my impulsiveness got the best of me again. I did not look closely at the pattern and realized after I had made the first piece that I needed to seam this project together. What the heck! I need sweater practice, though already I am a fan of top down.

Seaming of this sweater was first done with single crochet, but later changed to slip stitch in an attempt to alleviate some of the puckering…improved, but not gone completely, and the stiffness apparent in photo. The designer indicates she used cotton…I wonder if the fiber might contribute/alleviate the puckering from seaming?

A friend of mine recently made something in the same fashion and I was impressed by the simplicity of the construction and the two-tone appearance, so I set to crocheting this cowl for donation.

Imagine my surprise when I learned that the organization I was going to donate this cowl to unravels all crochet items and reuses the yarn for a very specific knit scarf pattern. I suppose I really would not matter, one way or the other, but it stuck in my craw that my work was unappreciated, so I kept it.

I can’t even tell you how long it took to make because I didn’t record anything; I can’t even be specific about the yarn I used because they were from my stash and did not have a yarn label.

Label for the multicolor yarn found; post updated accordingly.

I can tell you how to make one on your own…

With Yarn A (Fiber Content: Unknown [Acrylic]; Yarn Color: [Pink]; Yarn Weight: 4, Worsted) I made a chain to my desired circumference and joined with a slip knot. Alternating with Yarn B: Hobby Lobby Baby Bee Dreamy Baby Chenille (Fiber Content: 90% Polyamide, 10% Acrylic; Yarn Color: Sweet Cheeks 109; Yarn Weight: 6, Super Bulky), I worked single crochets in the back loop.

Dimensions: 33 (D) x 5 (W) inches

This cowl is very soft and cushy. As pictured it is long enough that it can be double-wrapped for increased warmth.

Price: USD $50.00

The project name – It Takes Two, sung by Zac Efron, from Hairspray movie soundtrack – correlates to the method of construction, requiring “two” different and complimentary yarns, to create the “two-tone” effect.
