Sticking with tradition I wanted to make something for Abby’s upcoming birthday and as soon as I saw this pattern I knew it would be perfect.
I also needed some instant gratification to break up the only other project that I have on the needles just now. Two nights and I’m finished!
I appear to have a ‘thing’ with stipes at the moment. Such a glutton for punishment…almost 50 ends to weave in but then again, not the worst I’ve done!
As always one of my favourite parts of the project was selecting the buttons.
Such a sweet pattern, very well written with clear instructions. I just adore the little puffed sleeves. I have so many of Alana’s patterns in my queue that I have decided that I must start stocking them in the store! We should have our first order shortly.
Abby is turning 1 this month but I upsized to the 2-4yr old as I used the Cotton Fleece and 4.5mm needles. The sizing turned out perfect!
I might just have to make a bigger one for miss Jade…
