Finally! A post about this winter's sweater for Ann~
Knit from Stockbridge by Valley Yarns, 50% Alpaca/ 50% Wool ~ in Dark Grey.
I modified the pattern three ways...
first by eliminating the kangaroo packet and adding aLOT more length to the body.
The bottom edge has a cabled pattern mirroring the neckline.
The sleeves have a simple k2p2 rib, I plan to frog them back and add long sleeves next fall (maybe).
Note the extra ease?
I wanted to make it BIG ENOUGH to fit her into adult hood...
my 12 yo beauty is already almost 5'8.
Here are a few more photos...
Here is she is a mere three years ago in her first Wicked sweater (ravelry link).
Sheesh. It's amazing what three year's growing can do. My baby! (sniff)
