Pattern: Limepop Sweater
Designer: Terri Kruse
Yarn: Mineville Wool Project Merino Single Ply DK
Colour: Moss
Needles: Circular - 4.0 mm

I loved knitting this little pullover for Alec. The pattern was a pleasure to work - so well written that the sweater came together perfectly. And the Mineville Wool Project yarn is soft, has great stitch definition, and, as an added bonus, is machine washable!

Because the pattern calls for worsted weight yarn, I knit the size 2T/3T to get 18/24 month, using the body and sleeve length for the smaller size. As this was a top down knit, the only other adjustment I made was to use a tubular cast on to produce a much more stretchy neckline. I found this knitbot video to be most helpful in learning how to do the tubular cast on.
