Sweet Sixteen Sweater

Hannah’s February Lady Sweater is finished and she’s thrilled – and so am I.  It was a fun and fast knit with absolutely great results.  See?

Doesn’t she look so cute?  The green is a great color on her and really different from any of her other sweaters.  The yarn is Dream in Color Classy purchased from Sonny & Shear.  Not only do they ship really quickly but they ship for free if your order is over $50.

Of course we had to have the obligatory tree hugging shot.  Along with another 85 pictures of her kicking up her heels and grinning and flapping her arms and being a genuine goof ball.  She cracks me up, I tell you.

The sweater, if you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t heard, is knit from the top down in garter stitch.  I knit Hannah the XXS and followed the directions pretty closely and the fit is just right.  The only modification I made was to decrease one lace repeat on the sleeves so they wouldn’t be so full at the shoulder.

We found these buttons at Saftler’s and they are such a perfect match.  They have a little bit of sparkle and are just the right shade of green.  Oh, and that was another modification I made – only 2 button holes so they would be in the garter stitch yoke portion of the sweater only.

She loves it.  I love it.  It’s a hit!

  1. I love it too! Now I want one – I won’t look nearly as cute. 😀

    But if I also made a February Baby Sweater…

  2. LOVE the sweater. It’s gorgeous and so is your daughter! Dream in Color is one of my favorite yarns and I’ve got this sweater in my queue on Ravelry already!! Just have to find the time to knit it!

  3. LOVE it Carol 🙂 I have it on my “to do list” and I hope it comes out as lovely as yours did…of course I won’t have such a gorgeous model to showcase my work. Great work Mama…on both creations!

  4. Oh, man, what a great sweater! And your daughter wears it well…of course, when you’re sixteen, you can wear anything well!

  5. That is PERFECT for her. I’m not a big fan of that sweater on most adults, but for a teenager, I think it’s ideal. It must be so fun to have such wonderful people to knit for. It turned out beautiful. Do you have another fabulous sweater in your queue for her for Christmas?
