Yarn: Knit Picks Swish DK in Lemongrass Heather
Needles: 6.00mm circulars
Ravelry:Louisa's Camilla Kid


Here's yet another Knit Picks Swish make. I've already made a baby sweater and a baby blanket with this yarn, and it's so squishy and soft and stretchy (and absolutely reasonably priced) that it's perfect for kid stuff.


I used 154g of this to make Louisa a Camilla Kid. I really like this sweater, and I really like how it turned out. I wish I had better photos of Louisa wearing it, since it wears very well (the fan pattern stretches over her little belly and really opens up the pattern) and the sleeve length is super cute (just a bit longer than 3/4 sleeve, but not quite full length).


Here's her big brother posing right along side her. #BFFs
Also, because it's garter stitch, it's not such a tight weave, which is good because both my children are pretty warm-blooded and tend to get overhot quite easily.

I did have to mod…
