I've been thinking about how to do this sweater for a few months now.  This was my 4th try and I finally got it just the way I want it!  My hub even put a post it on it when he got home the night I finished it saying, "awesome work hun, one of your best pieces yet!"  That was huge coming from him who knows squat Wink

Anyway, it's my own design, feedback it much appreciated. 

There are more pics and the pattern on my blog:

That turned out great!  I wish I could come up with my own patterns, even make minor changes in one, without completely freaking out.  I'm just not good at that.  And I can't believed you dyed that cotton, I loved how it turned out.  I hope the model doesn't grow too fast and she gets a lot of use out of it!   Wink

I totally love that!  your husband is right, it's awesome.  I'll probably make one, too, it looks so good on your model.

So beautiful and perfect. The sweater is great and the model is so scrumptious.

Do you know what I need to do to make it into a size 5?  Anyone?   Wink

well, not much really.  My 5yo tried it on as I went so the head and arms were to her custom measurements (although I don't measure, I try on Wink ).  Then she flat out refused to try it on for length, so I just held it up to her.  When I was finished she wouldn't wear it Sad  A natural consequence in my house for not helping mama with her designs is that you simply don't get to keep that item.  That's reasonable, right?  Wink

Anyway, I'd follow the pattern, then when it's time to do the arm holes, try it on your daughter first to make sure that 33 stitches will be enough, if not, that's fine, what I would do then is CO the extra stitches when it's time to rejoin to knit the arms.  I'm babbling this morning, sorry.

My 5yo (6 in may) did try it on after I had broke off for the arms and the chest fit her just fine.

Try it on for length though, you'll want it longer then I made it for my 2 yo.

Did any of that make sense?
