Tiny sweater decorations to match actual sweaters
I have 4 grand-daughters, ages 1 1/2 to 8 and am in the process of knitting sweaters for each of them. After the first one I decided to make a Christmas tree decoration to match, using Ruth Karohl's pattern. So far I've completed 3 actual sweaters and 3 decorations. One is pink and white striped; one is pink with white snow flakes and the 3rd is Plymouth Yarn's Heaven in a bright pink. I'm hoping that after the girls are grown and have long outgrown the sweaters the miniatures will remind them of their Nana.

Oh my gosh you must be reading my mind!! I was looking through a book today at the library with a pattern in it for miniature sweaters! :D I was thinking how cute they were and that I should try them out. It's such a cool idea. I was thinking of making a regular sized girls sweater and the mini one for a barbie doll to match. They're cool, huh?

Such an awesome idea!! I'm sure your grand daughters will love that!
