I loved knitting this sweater. The directions were very clear, and I enjoyed doing the cable pattern -- could not ever memorize it, but it was fun to do. Yarn: Lion Cotton-ease, size 4-6. The pattern is free here:

And best of all, my DGD LOVES the sweater!

That's a beautiful sweater, and such a lovely young lady modeling it. That's what I call Success! :yay:

Thanks so much, everybody! Encouragement means so much. I mostly lurk in the background of this forum, but I love to see the FO's (and WIP's) that are posted here. They inspire me to try new patterns and techniques.

Thanks again, to everybody else! I was especially pleased with the fit of this sweater. Last year I knit her a size 6 sweater (she was 4) and it is still too big. I hesitated doing the 4-6 in this pattern, thinking she might outgrow it too soon, but she does have a little sister who will grow into it in a few years. So I can't go wrong!

Thank you! I plan to knit the next size up, two or three years from now! I made the sleeves 1.5 inches shorter than the pattern.

What a DOLL she is! And she looks so 'Executive" in her little cardigan! It is not babyish at all! Just lovely! Very unique! Thanks for sharing your DGD with us, and of course, the sweater, too!!!!

Yes, that is my adorable DGD in the picture -- and the picture does not even come close to how adorable she really is -- spoken by a proud grandma!
Thanks for all the kind words.
