What are you most proud of? It took several tries, but I was thrilled to be able to create an almost seamless top down sweater design in very soft sport yarn. Knitpicks.com offers the colors needed - Planetarium, Serrano, White and Black, or check your local craft or yarn shop for soft baby sport yarns.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is not a difficult project. It uses only garter stitch. It uses circular needles, but it is knit front and back because it is a cardigan, which allows the knitter to see it taking shape. The sleeves are knit right in as flat shapes and then seamed under the arms (the only seams).

This is so cute. I am inspired to make one for my nowest great-grandson. I am always knitting--mostly chemo hats--and this will be a nice change of pace.

From the look on his face...'I signed up for WHAT?!' Ladies just can't resist a little guy in uniform. ;)
