FO: Birthday Sweaters

I finished both the sweaters I was working on for the kids birthdays. Before their birthdays even. Hobbit will receive hers tomorrow when we celebrate and Wee Man’s is going in his drawers when I remember to take it upstairs. I’m pretty happy with how both of them came out and they seem to be suitably sized.

A LushPattern: Lush by Tincanknits

Size: 2-4yrs

For: Hobbit

Yarn: Drops Karisma in Denim ~219g

Needles: 4.5mm and 3.5mm

Notes: Needed more yarn than I expected to and had to buy a 5th ball, luckily the same dyelot was available. Worked 6 buttonholes over 2 stitches. 72 stitches picked up for ribbing.
