Sweater and Hat
Just sent in this sweater and hat. The sweater pattern is Knitting Pure & Simple Children's Bulky Top Down Pullover which I came across in ElizabethD's 11/08 post. It's a very easy quick knit. I made it in the largest size and added two inches to the length of the body and the sleeves. I substituted ribbing at the cuffs and neckband and used the wonderful neckband trick that Elizabeth recommended in that post. It made a very neat stretchy neckband - thanks Elizabeth! The yarn is Lion Brand Alpine Wool in Olive. I had a little left over yarn so I also made the Easy Peasy Hat from KnitPicks.
