I’m proud to introduce a pattern I’ve been working on for some time! The Sweetling Sweater!

Sweetling Sweater

It went on the needles back in October! And now it’s done and ready for you to make for some little darling in your life! It’s knit in pieces and seamed together. This was one of my first seaming projects and I had a blast! Look up the mattress stitch. Super easy!


The texture pattern was lots of fun to play with. A bit of a riff off the double moss stitch with some fun twists, It kept my attention and made for a really interesting final product.


And the photo session was a blast! Nothing more fun than chasing a 10 month old around with a camera. 🙂
