The first sweater

While I was watching Ali speed-knit yet another adorable sweater at our last craft night, I thought, hey, I could do that... except crochet. I'd spent some time looking for a cute, inexpensive cardigan for Chloë to wear with some of her dresses now that Fall is upon us. The problem was, I didn't have a pattern and I had no clue what I was doing. So I chained a long strand, eyeballed it, figured it look like a good start for a neck line, and kept going.

Part way through, wondering if I had made it big enough.

I decided I wanted some cute little flowers to go on it, so I came up with these.

The finished product! I had to re-do the sleeves a couple of time to figure out the proper amount of tapering. But I think it's adorable on her. The only problem is that it barely fits her. So I guess I'll just have to make her another one.

Here's my very own supermodel baby modeling her favorite new sweater.
