Needles: Size 7 I love this pattern. It was difficult to put it down. It only took about 3 evenings or less to complete.
The little boy in the picture is my grandchild, Nick, taken many years ago. It's one of my favorite pics as he has his jean pockets laden down with rocks. He was about 3 or 4 years old at the time.
Here's a close-up of the neck warmer. I knitted a large, however, next one will be smaller with the bottom ribbing the same circumference. I couldn't get a good picture of the buttons but they are "snowflake" buttons.
Click on the pattern above to see pictures from the designer on how it is worn. The photography is really great!
I paid $2.49 for the pattern download. It is rare that I will do that. However, this one was well worth it. It is one of the "favorites" with many on Ravelry.
One of my young co-workers asked if I would knit her one so that will happen in the near future. That one will be an "oatmeal" color with wooden buttons.
I've completed quite a few projects in the last couple of weeks. More to come on posts this coming week.
