Bernat Baby Bubbles Bubblicious and a Birthday

Today is my younger daughter's 4th birthday. In honor of this special occasion, I am going to show you a picture of her very favorite sweater. I knitted this sweater for her long before she was big enough to wear it, and now it is getting almost too small for her. Why does that have to happen so fast?

Anyway, here is Gracie's favorite Bubblicious sweater...

Bubblicious SweaterThis sweater was made using Bernat Baby Bubbles yarn in the Bubblicious color. Now you know why she calls this her Bubblicious sweater! The pattern can be found in Bernat's pattern booklet called Just For Girls #530148 and this pattern is called Bon-Bon Jacket. I can't seem to find it mentioned on the Bernat website, except for one small pattern correction, so it must have been discontinued. I would imagine you could Google it and find it available online somewhere. I think that any pattern calling for bulky weight yarn would do just fine though.

This yarn was a little worrisome when I first got it because I wasn't too sure about knitting with all those little nubbies attached to the yarn. I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to knit with this yarn and how much fun it was to see the color patterns that were made as I knitted along.

Bubblicious SweaterHere you can see the difference in the look of the reverse stockinette stitch on the left and the stockinette stitch on the right. Reverse stockinette stitch really brought out the nubbies much better than the other side did. This must be why the main parts of the pattern are worked in reverse stockinette, which means that the side where you purl is considered the right side and the side where you knit is the wrong side.

With the half skein or so of yarn I had leftover from the sweater, I knitted a very simple little garter stitch scarf for Grace and of course she calls that her Bubblicious scarf and loves it just as much. They are both very thick and warm and feel almost like fleece. Even on the coldest days, Grace is a little heat muffin when she wears them.

Have you ever used Bernat Baby Bubbles yarn? I would love to hear what you think of it and what kind of projects you have made with it. Now I must go make a birthday cake.

Happy Stitching!

    What a beautiful sweater - I hope she can get another season out of it, but as momma's know, our little ones don't stay little forever :D I still can't get over the fact that my two "babies" tower over me - how on earth did THAT happen???!!
