    Such a great pattern, inspirational, individual. This is going to stretch me , but you make the patterns so achievable I really feel I want to have a go. Would say I am a practicing beginner, but my best work has come from such as your pattern. Wish me luck !!

    What a cute sweater! I was wondering how you did that hem?

      Hi Mia – Emily finished this one on the knitting machine so I believe she sewed down the hem on the inside of the sweater.

    Neve could not be cuter. What a doll. She reminds me of my niece when she was that age. So adorable. The sweater is cute too. ;-)

    I’m not a fan of stranded knitting but I think a lot of mosaic patterns could work for the yoke :)

    This little top looks great. I am always trying to find ways to use my stash of left overs and this is a perfect idea for my 18 month old twin grand children.😀
