Little Man Sweater

In an attempt to be stealth, I’ve kept quiet on this project, but as little man’s birthday was last week, he is now actually wearing the final result. And I am so so happy at how it turned out!

The pattern is super easy to follow – the trickiest part was creating the “hem.” Turns out I need two tries to appropriately pick up stitches (which really is no surprise as most every project I make I start at least twice). Once I was over that hump, the project was complete in less than three weeks with only a moderate amount of dedication.
