Archive for the ‘tapestry needle’ Category

Per multiple requests, I finally had some time during a break from work and was able to finish writing the pattern to add additional sizes.  As some of you know, the original version only had size 4 because I knitted the sweater for my daughter when she was 4 years old.  I had to do some research as usual to learn the different measurements on the parts of a garment and in various child sizes I was adding.  It was quite a project and another invaluable learning experience. 

The numbers in the updated pattern were not tested but written based on the original size 4, and using meticulous math calculations.  I will knit size 8 for my daughter when time permits.  I hope you enjoy it.
