Started during KCWC, finished in time to be mailed off for our niece’s 1st birthday coming up soon. Sweet and easy knit, definitely one to make again someday.
Pattern: TINY Tea Leaves by Melissa LaBarre
Yarn: Vintage DK in Delphinium
Notes: I followed the pattern exactly because that was the mood I was in, save to add a third buttonhole because I didn’t like the way only two looked on it since there were three rows of gathered stitches. I made the covered buttons for it and love how they came out. Rather than using my covered button kit I simply took the buttons from it, made yo-yos with my chosen fabric and popped the button inside the fabric as I pulled the gathered stitches tight. Simple, easy, and now the sweater has unique buttons.
With my history of putting buttons on projects I guess I should be thankful that it has any buttons on it at all!
