Christmas Sweater Mission - 50% Complete!
My 5 year old loves her sweater now that she can get it over her head!
First, I unraveled the neck band. Next, I picked up as many stitches as I could, 78 in all and knit a K1P1 rib. Once it was as long as I wanted, I bound off with the aid of my trusty crochet hook :)
In all, I believe the project took me around 5 hours as I was often interrupted but didn't worry about losing my place... Now it is on to the green sweater for my 2 1/2 year old, who is not convinced though she sees her sisters wearing theirs. I am afraid I traumatized her a bit Christmas morning trying to get the sweater over her head!
