I absolutely love chunky knit garments. Talk about speeding up the process of getting to the "feeling smug about yourself" part. They grow so quickly!

I know it's coming up to summer but my little girl needed something to give her that bit of extra warmth on the cooler days, so I made her this:



The only thing I was disappointed about was that the wool was so chunky you couldn't really make out the beautiful cable pattern.
Either way she absolutely LOVES it and won't take it off!

Comments and criticism are very welcome, and thanks for looking!

Ah, yes...chunky weight knit projects really are quick and gratifying projects.  I like the colors in the yarn, may I ask which yarn you picked for this sweater?

I can't remember the brand but I'll have a look when I go to the market next. It wasn't Sirdar or anything fancy but it was expensive at 3.75 per 100g. I used 4 balls for this so it proved to be quite costly but I think the end justifies the means!
