Prairie Fire

The second attempt at a toddler sweater with the yellow yarn, was a success.  This time, I went for a pullover rather than a cardigan. Interestingly, this pattern has the same lace pattern as Lucille cardigan, which I had tried earlier. 
 Again, I had to recalculate for finer yarn and needles. I went up to a size 8T to get a size 2T but it was easily managed and I had enough yarn to finish it comfortably.

The pattern was a pleasure to knit and went fast. It fits our toddler wonderfully well and after nearly a month knitting with this yarn, I am more than eager to take on a different one.


  1. Wow! I LOVE it! I'll bet that interesting wrap-around stitch pattern made the knitting go faster, too. I've never seen that kind of design, and I really like it! :)

  2. Salaam,
    I really love this, I am however still fresh to knitting and knitting something to wear (other than a hat) still intimidates me. Insha'Allah I'll be able to someday make something as beautiful as this sweater.
