Shawl-Collared Jacket

Hopefully, Peanut won't mind modeling this sweater for us so we can see what it really looks like.

Pattern: Shawl-Collared Jacket
Source: Baby Knits for Beginners, Debbie Bliss
Yarn: Knitpicks Shine worsted, Crocus

The collar is thick and comes up high in the back and is folded over. This was worked in a series of short rows.

Aren't these buttons cute? I liked them cause they allowed me to punch out the middle and matched it up with the petals to create the color combinations that I wanted. I wasn't too sure about using buttons that have bumpy edges since they may snag in the yarn but they were too cute to pass up. Hopefully they'll be ok.

Peanut can't wait to try it on. Since she outgrew the last one you made her, she is looking forward getting to wear your nice sweater again :).
