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!
My friend M found this pattern for a cute little spring sweater with a tie on it. A TIE! And as if that weren’t preppy enough, I found the perfect blue and white marbled yarn and slapped a yellow tie on the sucker. He could pass for a legacy at my alma mater any day.
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.
