Oh, this sweater is so cute - what lovely colors, and I love the buttoning at the shoulders! Fantastic work, I'm sure the little recipient is going to love it and will wear it with pride and joy!

Oh wow, that came out so cute! I never would have thought to use that colorway (I always go for the dull, muted colors), but this is clearly a better choice for this sweater. Did you modify the pattern at all? Yours actually looks cuter than the one on the Knitpicks site.

Your little sweater came out just lovely. Was it diffiicult to knit? I am not an experienced knitter but would love to make this sweater for my great grandson.
Do you have any tips for me?
