Hello! Here's a cute little knit that was just finished up for a friend's 1-year-old. I'm very satisfied with this project and would definitely make it again!
All finished!
Label detailing
Mommy & sweater
The Birthday Boy himself!

Here are the details!

Pattern: Presto Chango
Designer: Valerie Wallis
Needles: US #7
Yarn: Almost two skeins of Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece--Robin's egg blue
Time to knit: three days at a leisurely pace-- (it felt like sewing in ends and buttons took almost as long as the knitting)
Mods:I omitted the lace section and continued large stripes across the panel. Also, I began w/ 109 sts using a provisional cast on. Then, I knit until neck opening and followed directions for each side front until bottom of sleeves. I did a three needle bind off under arms and then continued knitting the rest of the body. Sizing ended up between the 12 and 24 month old sizes.

Aww, what a cute little guy! And the sweater looks neat with its buttoned front (that's a very different design). :)
