Made for Zoey's second birthday. Her Mom suggested this sweater made by SouleMama as something she might like. I didn't have the pattern for the Zimmerman sweater so I made it up as I went along, basing it very loosely on the Green Zebra Baby Sweater I made for Billie James. The lace stitch is called Fancy Trellis and I found it in my Reader's Digest Guide to Needlework (thanks Aunt Norma). The buttons are from Jo-Ann's, Zoey's Grandma Pat and Grandpa Stan helped me decide which ones to go with, these won out over the heather purple and ivory.
Once I see how it fits the Birthday Girl I will be able to make final adjustments to the pattern and hopefully publish it here for anyone to try. I also know two little girls in Northern Virginia who might send me their chest measurements and favorite colors! I really need the practice changing the pattern sizing, and they are long overdue for some knitted goodness.
