New Sweater

sweater2
This sweater was a Christmas gift for my little girl. As my husband will attest, I can rarely follow a recipe when cooking. This was that kind of knitting project. I used another cardigan pattern to get the gauge/sizing right, but then proceeded to knit it in the round, change the pattern from garter stitch to fair isle , steek it up the front, change the ribbing and the button band, and come out with an all-together different sweater. And I learned more in the process.

When I went to buy the buttons, I decided to go for an assortment of animals. She loves them.
