The color is hard to capture, so I put two different shots of the sweater and matching mittens. I had plenty of yarn left over, so I added mittens to the birthday gift.
The yarn is by Plymouth--Jellie Beanz, and the pattern is Little Lillie's Sweater by Cottage Creations. (I just have to buy 2 more buttons to complete it.) I used a US #8 needle, but probably would use a US #7 with this yarn if I knit another one of these. I would have to swatch and see. I definitely would consider dropping to a US #7 for the neck-ribbing.
This was a fun and easy project. I have another hoodie OTN now for our soon to arrive grandnephew. I am using Knit Picks Swish worsted for that one in light blue. This pattern is great because it ranges in size from newborn to 36 months.
Happy Birthday, Lily ! ! ! !
