Thanks. I have a neat formula for top down sweaters that doesn't require patterns. I like the the colours though.

A bit off topic: sometimes I wonder if people who design for children actually have kids... I looked up so many baby dresses and cardigans and they seem very impractical in terms of construction -- wide, lacy, no buttons. They are very cute and lovely for taking pictures at home but questionable for puting a baby in a carseat or just holding a hungry crying 6 months old

I remember that my ever favourite for this age was a cotton cardigan hoodie with cotton lining. Snug, comfortable, versatile and cute. I kept those even though they were store bought.
