Do you think the February baby sweater from Knitter’s Almanac is gender neutral? I’m a little unsure because of the lace pattern. I want to make something nice for a new niece or nephew due in the Spring, but since the parents-to-be have chosen to be surprised about the baby’s sex, I’m not sure what to make. I know I could always do just stockinette instead of the lace pattern, but that seems a bit dull. Has anyone put a baby boy in this sweater? Do you think it works as a gender neutral garment if knit in white or cream (or maybe grey or navy)?
This will be one of my first EZ items (I’m also planning to make the longies for my son and will probably do those first, since he needs something warm to wear to bed). I had heard so much about EZ on blogs and in various chat groups that I was curious to learn more. I got a couple of her books for Christmas, and I’m just hooked! I love her casual, practical approach to knitting, and I’m looking forward to the empowerment of following recipes instead of patterns.
