Notes

If knitting this for a smaller/shorter person, be aware that the sleeves are knit the same length for all sizes with different increase points. I wish I would have realized this so I could take off about 2” since it is for a 10 year old, but it does look really cute cuffed once so it doesn’t bother me too much and she likes that it can cover her hands like mittens if she wants to on the extra cold days . I made the smallest size for my 10 year old based on her chest measurement and which gives her about 2” of positive ease. Will fit great for quite a VERY long time. Definitely worth the the money spent on all this yarn.
Bought these burntwood toggle buttons online from http://www.honeybegood.com

Blocking..more pics to come.
Done…she loves it, perfect for these bitterly cold Colorado days.
