Spud & Chloe Sweater (Worsted 55% Woof/45% Organic Cotton) 2 hanks main color 1 hank accent color.
What was your inspiration?
My granddaughter, Shea, who's having her 1st birthday!
What are you most proud of?
I like the little girly color, and I think I did a good job of capturing the character of Susan's design.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Use the alternative cast-on method, it's less confusing...and redo the face as many times as you need to get it just the right way. Susan is right, the face makes all the difference. I took out my eyes completely after the first completion, then did the nose, then restitched the eyes, doing one of them twice again. Not that big of a deal, and it was worth the redo. Oh! And I used a simple wooden ruler to wrap the pom-poms.
