After much consideration (and math), I have decided to make the I Heart You sweater for child sizes only. I apologize if I told you otherwise, but the design would have needed to be altered so much to be flattering for women. Thank you, Anne, for helping me see the light. I would have been writing two separate patterns.
The sizes will range from age 2 to 16. Or, since kids vary so much, for a chest circumference of 20″ to 32″.
I’m working on an alternate version with some Lanaloft Sports Weight (sleeves first). The red white & blue (tempered a bit with some Carolina Blue – Go Heels!) is so very patriotic and I so love it. Lanaloft and Nature Spun are both awesome sport weight yarns from Brown Sheep. Have you tried them yet? I’m in the middle of deep infatuation with them both – even more so because they are made right here in the USA. Lanaloft is a singles and the Nature Spun is plied. Both knit up wonderfully.
You’d think I work for Brown Sheep. But in fact, I do not.
