It's been a while since I knit for one of my little friends. I'm sure I owe several of them projects. I've been very distracted lately. This particular sweater was a special request. As you well know, I don't typically do requests, but this wasn't a tall order. In fact, it hopped on and off my needles quickly. (see what I did there ;-D)
The yarn and pattern were provided by the requester, so I'm not entirely sure where the pattern came from. I think it may be from Lion Brand?? It's a really simple stockinette sweater with a nice little button-up convertible neckline, perfect for accommodating oversized noggins.
The bunny face is duplicate stitched on after knitting. Nothing too tricky. I thought it was a great way to avoid having to do any sort of intarsia. Props to the pattern writer for keeping things simple!
The pattern indicates that this is the face of a rabbit. Hallie and Mike both immediately thought it was a cat and gave me some serious side-eye and raised eyebrows. I guess it could go either way. To clarify, no, I haven't reached the level of cat-sweater-knitting-person. And, even if it was a cat, which it is not, it's for a baby. And, I'm pretty sure babies get a free-pass on the whole wearing of cat-sweater thing.
That's about all I have to say about that.
