The Bekah sweater is made for my sweet rainbow baby Rebekah. It is available in only 2t right now. Sweater is knitted flat from the bottom up and then the front and back are separated and knit flat as well. The ruffles are picked up around the edge using fingering weight wool yarn (to help the ruffles lay correctly I do recommend wool yarn) and knit with short rows.
