The Sweater "B" Done

I finished Braydon's "B" Sweater last night and Matilda the Bear agreed to model it even though she's not as big as he is.


THE DETAILS

Pattern: The basic "Panda Pullover" pattern, page 59 in Maine Woods Woolies by Hélène Rush, was used as the template for this sweater.  I charted the letter "B" and decided where to put the stripes on the sleeves.

Yarn: Berroco Pure Merino DK (now discontinued)
Main Color:  Baba Au Rhum #4523 ~3½ balls
Contrasting colors:  Chocolate #4574 and Ecru #4501, >1 ball of each

Needles: Size US #5/3.75mm

Notes:  The sweater is for my grandson, Braydon.  It was inspired by a sweater I made for his Mom when she was 3 years old.

Matilda's arms are too short! She is cute though.
