Livi has a very specific idea about what sweater i should be making. It's pretty cute.
mandarin collar, check.
wrap like a kimono, check.
So far so good. phew!
I just slipped what's done so far on Olivia last night and the sleeves and chest fit great.
Not too big, but roomy enough that she could use it as a jacket this fall.
I'm loving this stitch. I've used it before in two tone on a sweater that I was designing but never ended up writing. It has a woven look on one side and seed stitch on the reverse.
Being that she wants it to be "a red Chinese sweater mom!" I'm thinking I want to add little Chinese Frogs for the closure. Like this...
...in a bright color or just a simple black. Haven't decided yet.
Slowly but surely this little number is coming along. I have some fun ideas in my head to embellish and make it more cozy. Stay tuned... it's going to finish up looking completely different!
