Harry is complete!

Another FO! I am finally freeing up my needles. Here is "Harry", being modeled by the not-so-happy-to-participate-in-your-photo-taking 18m old.


Started: May 24, 2005
Finished: June 27, 2005
Yarn: King Cole 4 Seasons DK 50% cotton 50% acrylic
Pattern: "Harry" from Rowan Pipsqueaks
Adjustments: Did a couple more increases in the arms to accommodate for the slightly smaller gauge. I didn't work on it that often. I would say it could be knit in a weekend no problem. I just decided to get something completed...so Orangina has no other competition for completion.
The pattern is an oversized sweater, but it still is a little big! But that's ok, this will be a Christmas Gift...what every 2yr old wishes for!

I think oversized sweaters are so cute on kids and a great choice because children grow so fast at that age.

So cute! Oversized sweaters are perfect--like wool winder said, it can grow with him! He may even wear it to school :)

I love that color!

What a cute sweater! You are smart to make it oversized, they grow so fast. That's a great color too.

that sweater looks adorable on him. just perfect! don't worry about it not fitting at the moment. at the rate children grow it will eventually fit for at least 5 minutes of his life.
