The candy corn sweater

I finished Jack's Offset Wraplan yesterday. The result is pretty good. I think the neckline is too wide though. It slips off his shoulders a bit, but other than that it is pretty cute.

I love a free, seamless pattern. This one was really easy, and I love the mistake rib border.


The Details:
Pattern: Offset Wraplan
Yarn: Cascade 220 super wash, 2 balls
Mods: I only used three buttons instead of seven, not the best idea. I do recommend using more than three.
It did fit him really well before I blocked it. I wonder if washing might tighten it up a bit? At least he will be able to wear it for a while!

Okay, my friend, that's TWICE now you've mentioned having one more on my blog! Are you trying to tell me something? LOL!

I'd KILL for one more, but I think my doctor would kill me. So I will live vicariously through you and others.

so cute! At least it's not too small. I think big is always better when it comes to kids clothing.

Look at that face. Adorable. And the sweater is sweet. The color is beautiful and if you feel the sweater is just a little big, well, it works so well with the little shirt underneath and he'll grow into it for sure. I really like the pattern with the buttons "offset." Very nice, no doubt about it!

This is so cute. I love the colors. I don't know how to knit, but I crochet and have been thinking of making my own kids fall cardigans. Thanks for the inspiration.
