Although it looks blue, it really has many tones of purples and blues. I dyed the yarn myself then knit it into this Vintage 5 Hour Baby Sweater Pattern. Turns out that it took me more than 5 hours. Since it was my second one in 2 weeks, it went quickly anyway. I used size 10.75 needles and a bulky yarn so I think the sizing is about 18 months.
