View Full Version : Kindergarten Sweater

11-25-2007, 08:12 PM
I started this sweater over the summer for my GS Jayden. I finally got it finished in time to give to him on Thanksgiving. He started kindergarten this fall and when I took him school shopping he was really into picking out clothes because he "wanted to look handsome" when he went to school. :teehee:
Luckily, the sweater passed his handsome test and he loved it!
It's Caron Simply Soft Tweed in autumn red.

The pattern was a free pattern from the Bernat site.

You have to join/register to get the free patterns. It's the Child's Star Sweater. It's a basic crew neck sweater with a star on the front, which I skipped.
I still have it saved as a pdf file. let me know if you're interested.

That sweater is adorable! Good work.

WOW - that's incredible !! For me knitting a sweater is like running a marathon....something I admire others for having the drive to do, but not something I ever plan on completing.
Congrats to you it's gorgeous and he looks awful happy to have received it.

Great job! Your GS really does look snappy. :)

I made a cardi for my dad last year with exact same yarn. Love the color...so rich!

Your son has good taste!

Very well knitted.

That really is a handsome sweater. It is wonderful that he appreciates something that looks normal. My only DGS is into a phase where nothing is cool unless it has something from Star Wars on it. LOL Well, he may not be quite that bad. He told me maybe I could knit him a sweater with flames on it. LOL I haven't figured out how to do that yet.

That is a good looking sweater for a young boy. Great job!

Cute kid too! :thumbsup:
