Week 8 of our tiny sweater KAL features Fun in the Sun. After spending last week in the “Sunshine State”, I brought some sunshine back with me to New England along with some snow.
Beginning this week, the pattern won’t be part of the web page. It will only be available as a downloadable pdf below. As always the pattern is free!
Buttons are made using one strand of tan yarn to embroider the french knots. All of my sweaters are knit in one piece with very little seaming if any at all. They are also 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
