Notes

I have heard that my godson likes tractors. So I hope that he will like this tractor sweater.

October 16th: I started to knit this with biggest size because my gauge isn’t quite right. I hope that I sweater will be right size at least in some point.
October 17th: I decided that blue-green yarn doesn’t fit with the other colours. Now I use green yarn a main colour. It looks much better now.
October 19th: I started two-coloured knitting. (There is also three coloured knitting couple rounds.)
October 23rd: I started to knit first sleeve.
October 26th: I finished first sleeve and started second.
October 27th: I finished second sleeve and started yoke.
November 1st: I nearly finished it. Now I only had to block it and then sew the button to it.
November 6th: I blocked sweater.
November 10th: I sewed button.

This was interesting pattern but little hard. Still I like that finished sweater looks great.

It took 100 g green, 8 g white, 12 g grey and 5 g light grey yarn.
