Absolutely Precious 3 - Navy

This sweater & hat set will be gifted to my niece along with the Shades of Blue Round Ripple. This is the third sweater & hat set I have made. I think it makes a very nice gift set. This baby, due in May is the first of the next generation. So I guess I'm establishing a precedent with this layette!

My own dd is insistent that I photograph these pieces on her doll, "Big Baby". I have to admit she wears them well! Remember all photos are clickable!

Project details:
Caron Simply Soft - light worsted weight - acrylic - ~400 yds
Colorway: Navy Blue
Hook: Brittany G (4.0mm) hook
Pattern: 'Absolutely Precious' [Ravelry], designed by Denise Black in "24-Hour Crochet Projects" [Ravelry] ed by Rita Weiss
Size: 3-6 month
Accessories: 4 baseball buttons
Pattern changes: Only minor corrections to the body pattern.
Body - Row 1 ends with Ch 3, turn. I think it should be Ch 1 because Row 2 begins sc in first dc.
At the end of last row, I do not finish off but instead continue with the edging (if not using contrasting color).
