Itsy Bitsy Holiday Sweaters - Part 2

Welcome to part to of my Itsy Bitsy Holiday Sweaters series! The sweaters from this post came from the 2009 Berocco Minutia. I used size 1 (2.5 mm) knitting needles and KnitPicks Palette Yarn that I hand dyed (with the exception of the black).

The third sweater I knit was #8.
In this cape, I used the second brown that I dyed to create a knit hedgehog. The cape didn't turn out as cool as it looks in the pattern page, but then again I didn't have a crochet hook with me to put any edging on it.

The Fourth Sweater I made was #6. I was able to use a lot of different hand dyed colors in this sweater.

There are a lot of ends to weave in! Thankfully no one is going to actually wear this sweater.

I knit the sleeves in the round (to avoid some seaming), and bound off at the last purl row.

I knit 9 rows in the neck. I then rolled the neck and then

This sweater makes me think of Charlie Brown for some reason.

I hope you enjoyed the second installment of these sweaters! Be sure to check out the first itsy bitsy sweater installment.
