Another EZ Feb baby sweater

I made this sweater for a sweet girl turning one (birthday party tomorrow). Yet another February baby sweater, this time out of new cotton ease.

yarn: Cotton ease in violet 1.5 balls
needles: new Options US6 and US8 with 40in cables
pattern: from Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitter's Almanac
start date: July 17, 2007
end date: July20, 2007
modifications: As before, I knitted the sleeves in the round. The garter yoke was knitted with US6 needles and the lace was with US8. The pattern was followed except that I didn't cast on additional stitches for sleeves or body. I took a 12 month sweater and knit to that specifications. However, I did block out the sweater when I realized that she is bigger than A.

I also only put buttons on the top because I like the look.

I hope it fits.

Has anyone made an adult Feb sweater?

I love this sweater and it is stunning. I have not made it yet, but a friend of mine did in a variegated yarn. It is a great pattern.

I was stopping by to say hello and thank you for participating in my contest. It ends this Friday and then I start another one so check in.

I am going to read some more of your posts ;)

I loved this sweater so much that I actually ordered the book tonight. ummmm I really needed another knitting book. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I love knitting this sweater. I've got one in red for A this winter. And I'm looking around for little girls to knit this for. It's super easy and very quick, especially if you do the sleeves in the round (no seaming).
