Bright Tomten for Granddaughter
This is Elizabeth Zimmermann's Tomten pattern.

I used Caron Simply Soft Brites plus white.

Now I need to get one made for the younger granddaughter too before Christmas.

It's beautiful! I love the way you did the button loops, and the combination of colors is great.
