Lil' Green, Objet Finis
The Lil' Green sweater is finished. Oh how I loved making her. Knit from the top down, with a lovely pattern and a light, airy yarn, she only took about two weeks to make. Just in time for spring. As you can see, she's a might too big for M, but that was intentional. M is not quite yet 2 (almost) and is still growing quickly, and I'd like for the sweater to fit her in the fall and winter, too.
Pattern: Children's Neckdown Cardigan by Knitting Pure Simple, size 4
Yarn: Cascade Cotton Rich, somewhere around 8 skeins
Modifications: longer arms, jacket collar option
