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

Beautiful! Was that pattern as easy as I've been told? I have the pattern and the yarn, and I plan on starting it after I finish 2 Easter dresses in the works.

I saw your post on the baby bloggers website and just had to come and leave a comment. I love the color, and she looks so cute in it! Perfect for the first day of Spring!

I've never knit a top-down sweater, either. One of the women at knit-night was working an adult version -- not her first! Yours is lovely, great color for spring.
