My LYS is supporting Stitches from the Heart. (http://www.stitchesfromtheheart.org/) For each sweater we donate we get one chance in a drawing for a $100 GC. So here's my first sweaters.

Two of them were made a long time ago and two are new ones. Photos are clickable. Patterns are linked below.

This is the newest one. I used the free pattern from Knitting Pure and Simple and added the collar instead of the hood. I also added buttons with crocheted loops instead of ties so it would look more boyish.

This one is so cute! I love this pattern! The buttons are little hearts.

The first four. I'm working on the 5th now.

Your sweaters look adorable, Jan. The stripped one is very collegian sporty and the second sweater is a nice "go-to" pattern for an infant charity sweater, pretty and quick.

Jan--they're wonderful and so sweet! I want to finish the baby raglan I'm knitting for Katherine so I can try one of those. I also want to knit the BSJ, but I've had such trouble with it!:shock: I know you've done some, so I may have to "pick your brain sometime if I may!:inlove:

:aww: Thanks everyone!

Trudy, the BSJ pattern is hard to follow. I joined the Yahoo group and it helped a lot. This link was posted recently as a possible copyright violation, but I checked and it's been approved by Meg Swansen.

Jan, 5 chances at winning - you're a shoe in!!!
And with the cuteness of those, I think you should get TWO entries for every sweater!

Thanks for sharing the patterns :heart:
