Eloise's New Cozy Sweater

Eloise's mom saw a sweater in a store, took a picture of it and asked me if I could make it. The picture was a white sweater and she chose a burgundy color.


 I used a Knit-Picks yarn that is a washable wool.  That makes for easier care for a young mom.  It is also very soft.


 I think she had enough of the hood.


 I used a pattern that looked like the right style and worked out the detail of the design.  Instead of a stockinette stitch, I did 2 purl rows and the 2 knit rows and alternated the whole way.  It made it stretchier like a rib, so I blocked the back and saw it was too long, ripped out some of it and redid it according to the blocked size.

 I added these crocheted flowers.  They are a cute touch.

 

 Juliet is wearing a hand-me-down that I have made.  I wonder if she'll get any new sweater from me.
