|Pattern:||Adorable Knits for Tots, Zoe Mellor||Started:||5/22/2004|
It's just as soft as it looks! I really like this pattern, even with all the ends the striped sleeves and intarsia star created. The only change I made was to make the rolled hem the same color as the ribbing. I think my gauge might have been a bit off, though, because the 1-2 year-old size looks big enough for a 4-year-old! I guess that just means he'll wear it longer, right?
Despite the fact that it took me 6 weeks to make, it really was a quick knit, since I wasn't working on this project exclusively. Knowing my tendency to succumb to "second sleeve syndrome", I started with a sleeve, knit the back, knit the second sleeve, and then knit the front. I'll probably try that method for all of my sweaters from now on, because it really kept me motivated.
