Spring Sweater

This sweater, knitted for my seven-year-old sister, was made following no pattern. Each piece was carefully counted, as I made the front, the back, and each sleeve. The bottom edge and the cuffs are k4p4 ribbing. The back has cables 8 stitches wide.

Garment Data:
- Type: Child's sweater
- Date made: 2008?
- Pattern: none
- Fabric: yellow wool yarn
- Trim: green wool yarn
- Time to finish: most of a semester, if I recall
- Notes: This was going to be a wide scarf, but I got bored and started embellishing, and that ended up as the back panel.

Most sincerely yours,

~ Sarah
