Getting looser gauge but can’t imagine getting 25 st/ 4in! Might knit the 3-6 month size to get a little bigger one.

7/25: The knitting is finished but now the embroidery… Hopefully it won’t take me months to get around to it!

I pretty much completed the knitting then this sat around for over a year. I used a stabilizer on the front of the fabric and drew on the embroidery motifs with colored pencil. Then tore out the stabilizer after embroidery. The back is a little askew, but I wasn’t going to redo it! The embroidery is a mix of Knit Picks Shine and other cotton leftovers.
