Finished the last stitch in the seam of the one for my 7 year old at around 2 this morning.. he decided to wear it to school today (he really likes it when I make things for him, he'll be joining me at the AC Moore workshops on the 19th). :woot: :woohoo: :happydance:

That is incredibly adorable. I love it! I want to make one of these for my nephew - how did you change the letter? Did you knit it in or is it duplicate stitch? Sorry for all the questions. :aww: You really did a beautiful job. :cheering:

Great sweater! I enjoyed looking at your other projects too. Can you tell me what crocheted ripple pattern you use, as well as the ones for the cute crocheted baby hats and socks? I love them!

Thanks so much, LilHuskies. I will use these patterns for my donations. I haven't mastered knitting in the round or knitted socks, so this is great. Yours are so sweet looking.

the pattern is from an old issue of hooked on crochet.. i THINK i still have it around here in my box (i've boxed up all my stuff from crocheting as it bothers my carpal tunnel)...
