FO-Katja Baby Halter & Striped Baby Halter

Since I have the time, I wanted to do a quick knit for a baby shower coming up next weekend, so I pulled out my tried and true cotton yarn and knitted this up:

Pattern: Katja from Knitty, size 12 months

Yarn: SnC: Hot Pink, PnC: Brown

Needles: Size 7

Okay, I didn't swatch for gage on this one, so it ended up going to my 5 yo daughter who insisted on posing for this picture. Yes, the hand is on her hip. Instead of purling the same color, I purled with the brown.

Here's another attempt:

Pattern: Modified Katja from Knitty, size 3 months
Yarn: SnC: Hot Pink & Hot Blue, PnC: Brown
Needles: Size 5

I did get gage on this one, but the size is not for a 3 month old, it's more for a 2 yr old. The modifications to the Katia pattern include, knitting two row colors (no purl rows) in the round and adding the ruffle on the bottom. I just love the way this turned out.
