Karen, The Perfect Model

When I knit a sweater, sometimes it's a little difficult to find a model.  This sweater was made in a 12-18 month size and I couldn't think of anyone to fit the bill.  But we tried Karen, who I thought was a little large at the time, but it turned out she was perfect for this sweater.  I love doing photo shoots when the piece of clothing fits so perfectly.  Karen's mom loves photo shoots with her daughter also.  Actually most of the mom's love their children in our clothing for pictures.
She's enjoying herself in the little car as she shows off my sweater and cap.  This is a Drops Pattern that is available free online. 
It's a reverse stockinette stitch, which seemed funny to be knitting because what is the right side seemed like the wrong side.  I didn't think I'd like the sweater because of that.
The cap is a very cute addition to the pattern.

 My daughters went shopping for the buttons and they picked these nice pearly ones that go very well with the sweater.  And in the picture below you see the backside of the sweater which keeps up the look of the front.
I knitted the sweater with a soft, soft cotton yarn that I'm using quite a bit these days.  I love the feel and the drape of this sweater and it is easy care. 
The sweater is listed for sale in our Etsy shop.


  1. I love that sweater! I will have to remember it a year from now when my first 'grandaughter ' turns a year old. I think it looks perfect for a little Swedish girl.

  2. Did I tell you this sweater is on its way to Sweden next month? Along with the little dress the twins helped me make! Erica and Devon are going to visit Ida!


I love hearing from you. Please feel free to leave a comment.
