FO: Drive Thru Sweater (aka Quicko Cheapo)

Daddy's girl

Pattern: Drive-Thru by Wendy Bernard

Yarn: KnitPicks Swish Superwash in Fired Brick, Truffle, Copper and Camel Heather

Size: A little smaller than 2

Recipient: my niece Penny, who will hopefully be able to wear this for two years. (modeled by Emily as it is in transit to Pen)

Sweater guts

A quick and easy gift for any kid. The colorwork is so simple I don't know that you could even call it colorwork. I cast on 104 stitches to make it a bit smaller and then just did the math for the yoke.

Penny's Drive-Thru Sweater

One major modification was the omission of the fourth decrease section and the neck ribbing. I "finished" the neck 4 times before I got something that would fit over a child's head.

The yarn was delicious to work with although I bought way too much of the red. It's soft and squishy and I hope, hope, hope that it'll stand up to washing the way it says it will.
