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.
