My last sweater attempt was less than wonderful, so I tried again. Using the same yarn, I made this little sweater-jacket. With the variegated yarn, I can't get a decent photo of this one. I did a detail round of X stitch towards the bottom and around the sleeves. You can't see it at all in the photo but instead of buttons, I added ties to the opening with cork-screw dangles.
Very boring in the photo, but cute in real life. This sweater will go to Marine Corps Kids.
