July 30, 2013This IS Your Granny’s Crafting! Kid Sweaters Edition
by Betty Crafter
It never fails – right about August I start thinking about my long neglected knitting needles and start scouting out projects. I’ve got a few things in mind that I’d like to knit this year, and one of them is a new sweater for Little Betty. Kids grow so fast that it kind of makes sense to knit them a new sweater every year. So….I pulled a few vintage patterns out of my stash hoping that y’all can help me decide which one to do!
We all know how much Mama Crafter loves her a good cowichan, and OWLS! Always a crowd pleaser. Plus, matching hat! Yay!
Option #2 – Fawn Cowichan:
Just like the owl cowichan, fawns are always a favorite. I’ve already knitted her a squirrel cowichan – maybe she needs a whole collection of woodland themed sweaters? Speaking of woodland themed sweaters…
Option #3 – Gnome Sweater:
Gah!!! Can you even believe this? My head is spinning with possible color combinations. The mushrooms are SMILING, people!!
Option #4 – Cottage Sweater:
I’m not sure you can handle this one folks!
Did your eyeballs spontaneously combust from the high voltage cute?? Well if you still have your sight, feast it on the back of the sweater:
That kitty in the window slays me. I’m seriously in love with this sweater.
So what do you say, friends? Which one should I tackle this year for my darling girl?
