Notes

I’ll give this sweet little sweater to Serena later this year, since it looks like at least a 9-12 month size. I’ll definitely knit this pattern again and again!

Some notes:

  • Knit at a gauge of 5.5 sts/inch
  • I wanted lots of buttons on this so I did the buttonholes every 4 ridges
  • Omitted the lace pattern because of
    the variegated yarn and went with
    plain ol’ stockinette
  • Knit in garter stitch for awhile past the last increase row, to about 1” before splitting for sleeves
  • Alternated skeins because they were significantly different
