Well written and easy to follow. Knits into a lovely child's keepsake sweater. This took me about 2 weeks to complete and I thoroughly enjoyed working on it. However, I didn't follow the advice of many knitters on Ravelry and add 5 knit stitches @ the beginning and end of each row to eliminate casting on for the button band. I wish I had...Will do on next one I make. I can see that being a huge time saver. I made sleeve to fall right above elbow. My daughter is six, but the size 4 was perfect fit on her. Ready to start on adult version next.
This will be my first attempt at knitting a garment! I was finally inspired by this gorgeous pattern...by clear way it is written, the awesome yarn it recommends, and the style will be appealing to wear for many years!
I love this pattern! It's got enough pattern to it to hold interest, but not so complicated that you can't space out and knit while watching tv for large portions of it. ;0) I made the smallest size for my 18 mo. old. She loves it, and so do I!
