A Sweater for Sara

This is the Eyelet Yoke cardigan from Lion Brand. It's a Christmas gift for my niece, Sara, who is three. I'm considering it done even though I haven't found the perfect button for it yet. I've got another cardigan three quarters of the way done for her sister, in a deeper pink. I liked the simplicity of the pattern and how quickly it knit up. As for their one year old brother, I was really searching for a pattern for a sweater for him but then realized that I was running out of time and that a one year old will grow out of a sweater in six months. So I went online and bought two pairs of Rockford Red Heel socks for a sock monkey! I've always wanted to make one and now I finally have an excuse to. The socks arrived yesterday and they're actually nice socks that I would wear but wont since I don't think my nephew would appreciate it. So my plans for this weekend are to finish up the second Eyelet cardigan and whip up a sock monkey. Pictures to come!

Really like the sweater and I have a three year old granddaughter that would love it. What yarn did you use?

Maria, I used Lion Brand Cotton Ease, what the pattern calls for. I like working with Cotton Ease and appreciate that it's machine washable (easy care for busy moms). Give it a whirl!
