Chloe



My new stripey design is now finished and available for purchase!
This is a super easy fun pattern that goes remarkably fast on the needles.
It only took me a few days to complete!
I highly recommend trying out the new Spud and Chloe yarn, but this sweater would also be a great pattern to use up partial skeins of worsted weight yarn that you might have lying around.
Like all of my previous patterns, this sweater is worked in one piece with no seaming and very minimal finishing work.
I am offering this pattern in an extended size range, from 3 months all the way up to
girls size 10!




I really enjoyed knitting it and I know that you will too!

This is just so cute! I'm still working on two other designs of yours! I've got to get going! I'm so glad you are including the larger sizes. Thank you!

About that lollipop, when I was coming back from Nashville, from my visit with my daughter, a man got on the plane with a little girl with a lollipop in her mouth. The flight attendant asked her how she was, and the dad replied that she was just fine; there wasn't much a good lollipop couldn't fix! So true!

I love the pictures of your little girl, but the last picture of your daughter is my favorite on this set.

This is so sweet - and thank you for making it available in a range of sized. I have such trouble finding patterns for my 8yo daughter.

This looks like it will be great to knit as a gift, should go pretty quickly right? That way I can knit for a baby girl even though I don't have my own :)

Nicole Seitler said...

I just cast off and I had to come and tell you how happy I am with this pattern! I love the little sweater I made for my baby girl. I'm restraining myself from casting on another one right now! It was such a fast knit. I would have been done in a weekend if not for work getting in my way.

I will certainly make this again as my daughter gets bigger. Thank you for sharing this great little sweater!

I am really enjoying knitting this pattern. It is my first ever project and I have figured everything out until the pfb row in the ruffle on the bottom. I can't figure it out! I think I can handle kfb though. Is it important that it be done as pfb or can I go to the next row and kfb the whole way?
Thanks for the great pattern.
