My lastest size two boys sweater
Grandma Lynnie's latest labor of love for Aaron this time!

Made with Lion's brand wool ease yarn using a double strand of yarn throughout. Easy pattern from a book called: The Yarn girls' guide to Kid knits patterns for babies and toddlers by Julie Carles and Jordana Jacobs. Stocking stitch with garter stitch boarders. The button bands are knit as one piece with the fronts, as is the boarder around the hood and cuffs.
It was fun to make and took about two weeks to complete.

If you can identify the picture on the pocket I will sew it on. If not it stays off. Let the voting begin. Thanks.

PS: I call this "First Words" because my 20 month old grandson can say the names of each button: Helicoptor, tractor, train, dog

I think it's a helicopter? That is adorable! I love making kids knits, but I don't have any to knit for! :(

I have to admit my first guess about the pocket was Nemo, but there didn't appear to be enough stripes and the part above him didn't quite fit. Then I read the rest of the posts and have to agree that helicopter makes sense.

To be fair, a close up picture of the pocket would probably divulge much more!

I love the sweater AND the great first words concept. So cute and clever!

Signed,
Another Lynn(ie), though not a grandmother

Very cute! Those buttons remind me of when my 4 yo son comes shopping with me at the LYS... he loves checking out the cool buttons.
