Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I am like one previous commentor. If I see Marrianne designed it, I know I can make it.nshe writes very understandable step by step instructions. I stopped knitting years ago and just picked it up again and her projects are all easy for me to complete. Thank you so much for sharing this one!

Another darling sweater by Marianna. This designer writes up such easy to follow patterns. I always know that I will be able to make the item. This little sweater is just so sweet. Looks like you have advanced knitting skills when the recipient opens that gift. I have seen this pattern is every color under the sun and it is adorable in all. Add a matching hat, booties, and mitten, the baby is set for a day out looking glam!

I love this sweater. I'd like a 12 month side. Is it available?

Hi there! It doesn't look like a size for 12 months is available. However, Marianna, the designer, is very talented, and perhaps she would consider writing out a pattern for a larger size if you commented on her blog post. It is certainly worth a try! Happy knitting!
