FO: TOO many pictures???
I think I had more fun designing and drafting this pattern than anything I've ever made.
It took 3 weeks of trial and error just to create stitch patterns.

Orthopedic issues have me knitting only small things now. This is size 9 months. I used measurements from several books.

It's Caron's SPA yarn. I really like this yarn, it's very soft, light weight and machine washes and dries nicely. But it does require a watchful eye for splitting.

Front 1.



Front 2. Yup, thanks to a neckline without shaping, there are two fronts.


I did two rows reversed above the wrist ribbing to make the cuff fold up neatly.


Here's the placket open.


And another view of a sleeve.

Really pretty little sweater, wish I was good at designing like you and a few others are.
