Old layette sweater

Spring cleaning linen closet
found crumbled in back
husband's old layette sweater

Look what I found.  For some reason my mother-in-law gave me Herr Reinhart's baby sweater years ago.  His grandmother made these sweaters for all the babies.  I am going to copy it.  It is crocheted in one piece with a seam up the each side and sleeve.  I know how to crochet, but I would love to knit something like this, too. 

It's funny to think that Herr Reinhart was once that little and wore that sweet sweater.  As he was the second son, I think there was some hope for a girl. It was worn and washed many times from the look of it.  When I figure it all out I will post directions and photos.
