The pattern is here: http://www.theknittinggarden.com/gallery/aug-free-4.htm

I used Patons Fresco, I think three balls on #11 needles.
 Yayayayayay! I even learned mattress stitch, which seems like freaking magic, if you ask me!

Cool! What yarn are you using? I'm thinking of doing a couple more, it knits up so quickly.

That IS adorable.  I'm just learning, nearly finished with my first knitting project, and sort of already started on a second one that I couldn't resist.  (Do other people do that?  Have more than one project going at once?)  This one is suitable for a real beginner?  Miss V is adorable!  Can't wait till my daughter is a little older so she can start really helping with her own choice of clothing and such.  She's almost 18 months, but I still feel a bit like I'm dressing a doll, buying her clothes just because I think they're cute...

<--Shameless plug-->  Say, you should join the Children's Swap!  We need at least one more participant, and you can make anything you want.  Little Miss V would get a crafty gift out of the deal, and you'd have a really good reason to knit up another one of these sweaters!

Lothruin, i always have more than one project on the go.
I just have so many things i want to make i feel i have to have more than one at a time, and that way if i get pissed off with one i can put it down and go to another.

strangelittlemama, i am just using a acyrlic that i had in my stash, it has knitted up rather well although i know the hang won't be the same as the cotton blend. I only started it yesterday and so far i have a back and sleeve. ( i never do things in order) I'm a bit worried though that it may be a little small for my daughter. But then if it is i will pass it onto my friend who just had a girl a couple of weeks ago. She can  put it away for when it fits ( i hope it does fit my girl though)

Mattress stitch is not so scary, after all! There's a great, very helpful article on knitty this issue: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring04/mattress.html

And, sbub, the ribbn I used was acrylic, too.

hi strangelittlemama,
i was so inspired by your amazing sweater and adorable girl, that i made one for my daughter's 3rd birthday, and just convinced her to try it on tonight...

the lighting isn't very good inside, but maybe you can see the soft cotton yarn...a blend of all the golds, yellows and oranges i had on hand...
here's a closer pic:

thanks for the idea. i really loved making it.
