Fair Isle Cutie


I've finished my first Fair Isle sweater. Here are the particulars:
Pattern: Drifting Kid's Raglan Pullover from Inspired Fair Isle Knits by Fiona Ellis
Yarn: Plymouth Encore DK, 2 skeins of 2 main colors, 1 skein of 4 other colors
Size: 18 months (but it appears much larger in spite of knitting a swatch)
Started May 25, finished June 5
Matching buttons to be added for left side when I receive them.

Oh, it's absolutely beautiful! Congrats! An heirloom item if I ever saw one - I still have some of the handmade sweaters I wore as a baby! :D
