I fell in love with Knit Picks' Dawn pattern (http://www.knitpicks.com/patterns/Dawn_Child_Sweater___D11507220.html)  and knew I had to make it for my monkey. I did the size 6 pattern (she's a size 5T-6) and it fits pretty well. She has a little room to grow but sadly, it won't make it to next winter. Oh well, different color next time.

The pattern called for Knit Picks' Andes del Campo, but sadly my daughter inherited my wool allergy. So I used their worsted weight acrylic yarn in "fairytale." It's a really simple pattern and only took about 7 days to knit! You can't see the eyelet detail very well with her purple shirt underneath but it's there. Smiley

What a lovely sweater for your cutie pie!!

The color is fun and bright, and I love the knit picks yarn...it is very versatile and comes in such vibrant shades!
