Gotcha! is named appropriately for the our family’s “Gotcha Day” which finally finalized our daughter’s adoption! The long open fronts wrap around her in comfort and warmth, which I hope that she will always feel in our family.

Gotcha! is an open front child’s sweater, sized from 6 months to 12 years. Gotcha! is worked from top down, with no shaping, and has optional buttonholes at the top. It is worked with worsted weight yarn and is very simple to knit.
