Guild KAL Sweaters

Our knitting guild is doing a KAL of a cute, easy child's sweater for donation to the Salvation Army's holiday distribution program. The pattern is available online for the sweater (in child's sizes 2, 4, and 6) and a hat. It calls for worsted weight yarn. You can find the pattern at http://margarethubertoriginals.com/CHILDBLUE.html.

Here is a photo of the green one I showed at the September guild meeting. This one was knitted using Red Heart TLC Essentials, color "Lt Celery".

Here is a photo of another one I knitted, using Red Heart TLC Essentials, color "Lilac" and a touch of fancy for the garter stripes down the front and back (Lana Grossa Caramella Print).
If you are a fellow guild member looking at this blog post, you may want to consider knitting one of these up before the October meeting. Joanne will be teaching a program on Crocheted Flowers. Wouldn't some crocheted flowers be perfect embellishments on this little sweater?

That bit of color really does fancy up the sweater. Makes it more distinguishable which is for a boy and which is for a girl.

If I can tear myself away from cloths, I might try to knit that sweater. I don't have anyone that small to knit for so it would have to be donated --- to someone, somewhere.

Happy knitting,
