My niece's 1st birthday...A sweater

Thomasknits's picture

I made this for my niece, Katie, who turned 1 last wednesday. The pattern can be found on Ravelry as a free download...just search for pinwheel sweater, I think.
I also need to acquire a picture of my Queen Anne's shawl, which has been resting at a point halfway through it's cast-off edge.

The sweater is really cute

The sweater is really cute and I like the colors you chose. I love making kids garments. I'm sure her parents really appreciated it.

Very cute!! Did you have to

Very cute!! Did you have to do any sewing of pieces together? Take (or ask for) pics of her wearing it too!

She wouldn't keep it on long

She wouldn't keep it on long enough...I'll ask for a pic though. No seaming...just a big circle with sleeves. You have to do a provisional cast-on for the sleeve holes though. And the i-cord edge was a b**** to knit, but it was fun overall.
