Your eyes do not deceive you! This is a finished object!
Isn't it pretty? I think the little flower-shaped buttons set it off perfectly.
Yes, it is a Christmas present, but since the intended recipient isn't even a year old yet, she probably doesn't read my blog and I hope her mommy can keep her mouth shut.
Pattern: Offset Wraplan (Rav link)
Size: 6 - 9 month size (not sure about this - I got gauge, but this looks awfully big)
Needles: Size 5 circulars and then DPNs
Yarn: Patons Decor in 'Rose Garden' and Red Heart Soft Solids in 'Wine' for edging
I had a lot of problems with this pattern - and that isn't to say that pattern is difficult - it isn't, and it makes a lovely little sweater, but it seems to me that the math is off in so many places. They were easy fixes, however - I have knit enough top-down raglan sweaters that I was able to work through the counter-intuitive moments.
There are some great examples of this sweater on Ravelry, and that is where I got the idea for the three buttons at the top rather than buttons all the way down. I think it is easier for babies and makes a swing-coat like shape.
