Little girl sweater for fall

>> Friday, October 22, 2010

Towards the end of summer I did a lot of searching for the perfect fall sweaters for my children.  When I came across the Petite Purls website of patterns (all free) I found the perfect cardigan for my daughter. 

The Pink Orchard pattern was created by a woman who also wrote the pattern for the dress I made earlier this year.  I love them both dearly and I wish she had more patterns available.

I used the recommended yarn from Knit Picks and changed the colors per my daughters request.  Avery is in love with pink and purple so of course that is what we went with.  I modifed the button band by picking up stitches and knitting it in 2x2 ribbing instead of knitting and sewing on a button band separately.  We also went with one button as the recipient only wanted one purple heart button. 

Her jaguar needed to be in the photos as well since "her collar matches my sweater".....and as always there was plenty of running.

So sorry I have been away for so long (cooped up sewing Halloween costumes) but this photo is the start of a finished off parade.  Enjoy your weekends, I will be finishing up costumes, watching Halloween movies and enjoying a weekend rainstorm, and I will hopefully be back Monday with another finished off knit.
