The Sweater is Finished!
The sweater is finished! Well, it's not quite finished since I still need to sew on the buttons. I decided to post pictures now since it may be awhile for me to find just the right buttons and get them sewn on.
Emily is not a very good model. She did not like wearing the hood, and she would not stop wiggling long enough for me to take a very good picture. I had to settle for a picture of the sweater modeled by Miss Pouty, the doll.
I am very pleased with how this hooded sweater went together. The instructions were easy to follow, and the yarn was a pleasure to crochet with. I did follow the crocheting gauge, and I feel like the sweater came out true-to-size. Emily is 16 months old and I made the size 18 months sweater. It fits Emily slightly big, which is what I wanted. Since it is still so hot here in Oklahoma, Emily has time to grow some before she will actually start wearing the sweater. Maybe I'll get the buttons sewn on by the time it's cool enough for her to wear the sweater!
Next project: I am going to crochet Jessica a sweater out of some beautiful homespun yarn that she brought over one day. Hopefully this sweater will go together as easily as Emily's!
