B is for Braydon - Finished

I have one more project to add to the list of finished items for 2013.  I made a varsity-style sweater for my Grandson, Braydon, as well as one for my Granddaughter, Makayla.  I didn't quite finish in time for Christmas, as planned, but they got their sweaters to wear in the new year.


Pattern:  Original, a basic pullover, worked in stocking stitch, set-in sleeves
The "B" was done in intarsia.

Size:  4 years - Braydon will be 4 at the end of this month.

Yarn:  Main Color -Schachenmayr Regia Trendpoint (Ravelry link)
#6615 - Electric Blue - 1 ball plus about 1/4 of second ball
Contrasting Colors, both Dale of Norway Baby Ull
#2317 Yellow and #0900 Black

The sweater has been washed and dried in the dryer - no shrinkage.

  Needles: US #2-1/2 / 2.75 mm for ribbing and US #3 / 3.00 mm

Note:  The sweaters fit!  Braydon was bribed with a Timbit so that he'd sit still.  You got to love the energy of little kids.  Sometimes it's like trying to herd cats!!
