This is a NICE sweater. It made me think of the beautiful pinwheel coverlet/baby blanket that someone else posted elsewhere. I would love to have one.

I just finished up a child sized one. The hardest part is starting out with eight sts on four needles, but once you get passed that.... It's really easy. I did the sleeve differently, using the "afterthought heel" technique which was, IMHO, much easier than the convulted instructions for a provisional CO! :teehee:

Lizzie, that turned out cute. I'd like to make one for myself and granddaughter too. She'll soon be three. I haven't read all of the instructions yet. How many buttons are on the front or is it held together another way?

No buttons. It's more of a hanging open in front type of jacket. Although if one were slender and made it big enough, one could lap it over and tie with a belt.

I just noticed that here is a posting about this sweater pattern on the Knit - Along list that is a couple pages long.
