Effervescent Mini

Aimee Sher Makes is known for her exquisite hand-knit patterns, and this effervescent mini sweater is no exception. I knit this piece per instructions with no modifications other than length.  Using Skein Yarn in hydrangea (uptown sock base) and sea glass (mohair/silk - ruffle) colourways, this sweater for littles was a delight to knit. The gorgeous colours from the yarn and intricate pattern make it such a unique and special piece.

This sweater was made for my daughter, who handpicked the colors and pattern for the design. This collaboration resulted in a truly personalized and one-of-a-kind garment that she is so excited to wear.

Additional personal notes: I don't often knit bottom up and if I make this again I'll likely add even more length for my daughter's height and also I knit the size 8 but needed less than 2 skeins of the main yarn. I have a leftover skein which I'll likely turn into socks but FYI as I know some yarns can be a strain on budgets. Your yardage may differ but that was my personal experience :)
