Yes, I actually do knit and here is the proof. I totally love this pattern. I'm surprised at how fast I turned it out. The BF was even impressed. The only problem was the buttons.
I picked up this little baby sweater at our church's harvest festival last fall with the hopes of recreating it. To be honest, however, I've decided I'm too lazy to work it out.
What do you do with leftover acrylic?

You can knit a shawl.
This is the "steeples" lace pattern - in an offset (first 4 repeats) and regular variation; done as a double down shawl.
