Notes

Made to match Madison’s Ruffle Hat. Also very pink.

After two projects, I am not a huge fan of this yarn. It splits and snags like nobody’s business, although it’s much better on the size 7 needles. Splitting aside, though, it’s soft and the yardage is good - I have enough for the hat, the shrug, and probably a pair of booties or baby socks.

Only mod I made was to knit the sleeves in the round.

This was a fun pattern to knit. It knit up really quick (two days, really) and I knit super slow. Definitely will knit others for future babies. :)
