Here is the first prototype. It is the smallest (Preemie) size just because it is quicker to work out the kinks with a smaller project. Besides, Preemie Patterns are cute and Butterscotch loves to model them. I am back into the multi-directional mode but still no-sewing.
Now I have begun a size 18 months (largest size) and I will detail each section as I go. There will be little glitches but I am confident that it will work and will be fairly easy to put to paper. Time will tell. So far I have completed the first and second section. 1. Neckband; 2. Short Back Panel to balance the front neck shape. Next is the sleeve panel. Remember, visitors are welcome and I will keep updating the progress. By the time this one is done, I should have at least a rough version of the pattern on paper.
Until next time........ MommaBearKnits

This one is the first of many samples worked in the Preemie size, now I have to work the #'s for the next 4 sizes. There is still a long way to go and there will be quite a few changes before the final version is done.

Oh Yeah, MommaBear is still knitting. I have been asked (prodded) for some time to do the #'s for the final version of "Baby J". It is a grown up jacket with the Garter Stitch Multi Directions, the same as the 'Baby J' and the 'Junior J'. It will be called 'J Walker'. Garter Stitch is a lot of knitting and it takes a lot of yarn but the finished product is worth it. I will keep you posted with progress photos. Right now I am working (in garter stitch) the collar, not much to photograph yet. A long way to go.
MommaBearKnits on into the wee hours and also in the morning after she has her tea and views the wild things in her backyard. Life is good, Freedom 65, why does one have to wait so long for the freedom to do what you want, when you want.

Then of course, Ruster the Cruster had to give his approval as well. Rusty loves my Teddy Bears, however, sometimes he runs with them and somehow takes off their sweaters.
MommaBearKnits on into the night and walks the Ruster Cruster during the day.
