Charlotte's Latest Wardrobe Addition

Here's Charlotte's new sweater.


I love this sweater on her. She'll definitely be wearing it a lot this fall. The pattern is the Big Push Sweater from Miss Bea's Playtime. It was knit up on size 6 and 8 needles and used 3 balls of Rowan ASC for the main color- Kiss- and 1 ball for the stripes- Fern. I made the 1-2 year old size and didn't change anything about the pattern- which led to some confusion. I used a three needle bind off for the first time on the shoulder seams and was left with a visible seam. After I talked with my mother in law and read through Monday's comments, I realized that I had bound off with the wrong sides facing, so my seam was on the wrong side. I was about to reseam it, when I read through the instructions again and realized the seam was supposed to show. I had seamed it correctly for what the instructions wanted, so I left it and am very happy with the results. Here's what the shoulder seams look like.


I've already started on Charlotte's next ASC project and will post photos tomorrow.

That's such a cute sweater on a very, very cute little girl. I suspected that that's what you might have done with the 3-needle bind off but I just wasn't sure.... therefore my cryptic message. It fits Charlotte really, really well.

The sweater looks great on Charlotte, doesn't she look grown up in it?! Bless.

I think Charlotte is the perfect model for a perfect sweater. It looks great, I think this one is my favorite so far.

Love you much,


That looks great! I love the colors on her. It's veyr pretty and will be awesome for fall. I think the seam looks nice - it "goes" with the collar. I want to make this sweater now! :) Charlotte looks beautiful!

The sweater looks great and Charlotte is adorable as always :) I like the three-needle bind off you used.

The sweater looks lovely. I am surprised that you managed to get Charlotte to hold still for enough time to take a photo... ASC is my favourite yarn - I keep buying more and more of it and still have my eye on some in "Military" from the shelves of Knit Happens :)

What a great sweater! Charlotte looks so adorable. Hope to see ya next weekend!

I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Charlotte's new sweater!! She looks like she absolutely loves it and she looks great! :) I can't wait to see what you're working on next...
