Periwinkle Sweater

Finished the Periwinkle sweater... :)

I am very satisfied with the yarn.. It is Caron Wintuck and it knitted up very nicely .. It feels nice and cozy on and I love the color!
I did a few changes to the pattern along the way!
First I made it about one inch shorter because it is a Ladies Small but it is for a ten Year Old !!! ( My Grandaughter Allie )
Then I made a buttonband instead of a zipper.. Just because that is ny preference!!!.. Actually I did not want to have to sew in a zipper .. LOL and besides.. Where would I find a Periwinkle Zipper anyway!!!
Then instead of binding off in the rib pattern on the collar.. I did a crochet bind off and did a three stitch crochet over the drop stitch rib to give the collar more of a " swing" to it..
I liked this pattern and I will no doubt do another one......
Below is a close up of the beads that I knitted in .. I put them in all the places where there are Ribs...

The sweater you made for your granddaughter is absolutely wonderful! I'm sure she will not only look great with it on, but will feel just wonderful, also. Especially since her grandma made it for her! I love all of your other work, also.
