I call this one Sprout.  It's a funnel neck, top-down, seamless child's sweater in Lamb's Pride Worsted (colorway 105 RPM Pink).  It took three skeins an was a quick knit.  I designed it myself and will make it a free pattern download on Ravelry (a nice, clean pdf file), in sizes 2/3 (4/5, 6/7).  I knit this one in size 6/7 for my daughter, it's long and roomy enough that she'll be able to wear it for a good while.

I really like it.  I like that it is a solid colour but has something to it because of the detail of the pattern.  Great colour choice for your daughter.  I can't wait to see a pattern!

Oh and the expression your dd's face in the first pic is priceless Smiley

After checking out Regretsy I'm pretty sure I could sell my stuff on Etsy.

Wow -- beautiful sweater and beautiful little girl! She's lucky to have a mom who makes her such cool things. The pattern is really simple and lovely, and I like the color you chose, too. Fabulous job!

Nice work, love the collar you chose.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

Thank you, I didn't think she would like a turtle neck, so I went with a funnel neck instead.  They have dress down Fridays at her school and she wore it today!  That makes me so happy!
