Notes

Aidan picked out the color for this little sweater. He keeps suggesting that we paint rooms in our house orange, so I’m hoping this might help get the color out of his system. :)

My plan is to work with the width of the 6-12 month size, but add some length to the body, the sleeves, and possibly to the hood. I’m hoping this will get me something between the 6-12 months and 2-4 sizes.

I don’t love the pattern instructions for working the front pockets--I gave the pockets a try as written and just found the first row of the pocket loose and messy looking. I ripped back and decided to just pick up the necessary stitches for the pockets, which looks a lot cleaner to me.

I’m also alternating my skeins of Rios throughout since I’ve experienced noticeable variation between skeins in the past, even when they’re from the same dye lot.
