This is a simple-yet-cute top I made for my niece's fourth birthday:

I used this pattern http://www.theknittinggarden.com/gallery/aug-free-4.htm and just under 1 skein of Bernat CottonTots in Strawberry. The birthday girl did not seem all that excited about the top since it did not have a Barbie or a Disney Princess on it like everything else she received, but I'm hoping she will be won over once the birthday frenzy has passed - it came out soooooo soft after I ran it through the washer and dryer (also, the sleeves are not quite as freakishly small as they look in the picture).

This is why I suggested attack dogs, but no, my mother wanted an alpaca.- Logan, Veronica Mars

this is so cute and lucky me I have a ton of cotton tots and a soon to be four year old to knit for. Thanks for the link, and nice work too.

That top looks like it needs me to knit it - it is SO pretty.

You did a great job - even if there are no logos on it.

And I also went mad a few months ago, buying cotton yarn that I have had no use for - until now.
Is Bernat Cotton Tots the same weight as ordinary cotton yarn? (The cotton yarn that is used for dishcloths.)

Many thanks for the pattern link.
EDITED to add: Looks like you've made a couple of cotton-yarn hoarders very happy.

That is beautiful, thank you for the link I have one skein of cotton tots I bought on clearance with no clear use in mind and a three year old, perfect combo. I love the the way yours looks, I like clothes without logos better, easier to match.  Wink
