Recommended with this pattern

  • 2 ball of Drops Baby Merino - 100% Merino extra fine wool superwash; Fingering weight (191 yards per 50 gram ball), or suitable substitute yarn. If substituting yarn, you may find it helpful to know you'll need approx. 210 yards/192 meters of fingering weight.
  • Circular knitting needle in size US 2 (3.00mm), or size required to obtain gauge. Note: All parts of sweater are worked flat, so straight needles can be used if desired, until the point where sleeves are joined to body and the round yoke begins. At that point a circular needle makes working the yoke much more manageable.
  • 1 button, approx. 7/16" in size

I've been blissfully obsessed with creating things since way back when my legs were too short to reach the floor while sitting at a table. I LOVE to knit (and sew, and have been meaning to learn a little more crochet...). Aside from my crafty obsessions, I adore books, audio books, feeding the people I love, colors, nature, playing outside, a good nights sleep, learning new things, daydreaming, pondering the ridiculousness of the world, nerdy history and science related books/shows/movies, how I feel after vigorous activity, finding new things to love, catching glimpses of what the world looks like through my daughter's eyes, cute furry animals, this list could go on and on .... I think the online community for crafty people is amazing, and I'm so glad to be a part of it. =)
