Bethany wanted to knit something for Penne to wear since she has out grown most of her handknit sweaters, so she chose this great layering piece, the Girls Cap-Sleeved Cardi Vest Pattern from Knitting Pure and Simple. She chose the Noro Kama yarn since the colors are fun and stripey. Bethany knits a bit loose so she went down a couple of needle sizes from what the pattern calls for. She knit the smallest size, knowing that the result might be a bit large so that Penne could grow into it. She was right and the result was closer to a size 4 which is fine because she should be able to wear it in a year or so! We love the super cute Owl buttons she chose! Nice work Bethany!
