This is Salade de Fruits from La Drogeurie in the Peaches in Syrup colorway. This is a bamboo/cotton blend, very soft and pretty. It came as a kit, with the pattern and buttons included.

I’m making Villelaure, a straightforward raglan baby sweater. The pattern begins with short rows in garter stitch — point de mousse — to shape the neckline nicely and make a pretty band. Then it continues with traditional raglan plus bands of point de blé — wheat stitch, though we don’t seem to use that term in English — at the front edge.

It’s simple and smart, and should be just right for the Baby’s layette.
