When I saw this free pattern, I knew that I had to make one. This free pattern from mooglyblog is absolutely adorable! I made one in the 18 month size using Vickie Howell Sheep(ish) yarn which is washable, soft, and warm. The buttons I purchased at JoAnn Fabric, and I think they go really well with the sweater. The pattern calls for stripes in four different colors, but I chose to stick with three shades of blue. There are so many possibilities with this pattern: use wool (or wool blend) or acrylic yarn for a cold weather sweater, use cotton yarn for a spring sweater, and of course mix and match yarn colors! I was thinking of making a spring sweater with cream yarn as the base, then some yellow and purple and other flower colored stripes.
Happy crocheting! And Merry Christmas!
