Lady bugs are said to bring good luck. Week #18 features a whimsical ladybug. The Variegated yarn is from Evilenabler on Etsy . The sweater is made using only 3 double pointed needles. This is so much less awkward than using 4 or 5 double pointed needles on such a tiny garment.
Sweater is knit from the top down.
Sweater is approx. 3” tall
