"mpg" / "pax symbol" baby sweater

purlyman's picture

So Matt's cousin had a baby boy last December. His initials are "mpg" and his middle name is Paxman. So I designed a little sweater with his initials across the back and a Pax Cultura symbol on the front. Turns out they chose blue and brown as colors for his nursery and baby announcement too! I also knit his birth date on the inside of the hem. It will probably be big enough for next fall/winter and maybe sometime after that.

That sweater is so cute.

That sweater is so cute. Everything you did to personalize it is wonderful. I especially like the birth date on the hem. I sometimes sign my sweaters in the same manner.
