Just barely getting this in on Friday in Idaho! No new submissions for this week, so you get another one of my finishes! This isn't technically a Holiday item, because it was a birthday gift for my daughter's 10th birthday. But her birthday happens to be in December, so it's close enough.
This fall she asked me to make some legwarmers for her friend's birthday, and when she was looking through my stash for the perfect yarn color, she fell in love with this jade green (Pagoda, Caron's Simply Soft). I immediately knew I wanted to make something for her with it.
So I found instructions for this top-down raglan - it's custom-fit, so it requires a bit of math the first time you make something. I bought another skein of the jade, and decided to add some white stripes to make sure I'd have enough and here it is:
I had just a little bit of jade left over, so I decided to crochet a beret for her as well. She pulls it down like a ski hat, because she's 10. But she loves the sweater!
