I made this sweater as a gift for my 6-month-old grand-niece (I’m much younger than that makes me sound!), but decided to put it on this burlap bear that sits in my back hallway just to see how it looked 3-dimensionally. Well, I had to make a different sweater for my niece since my husband and I loved this sweater on the bear. The bear was a gift to my husband from his mother shortly before she passed away a few years back. It had been hers for many years and my husband always wanted it, so she gave it to him for Christmas just a few months before she died.
I got the pattern and the wool in a shop in Camden, Maine while vacationing there this summer. The pattern is by Silver Creek Classics (#C-441) and is titled “Toddler’s Cable Yoke Guernsey Pullover”. The yarn is a brand I’ve not seen since that shop in Maine. It is called Sisik by Dalegarn (www.dale.no) made of 30% wool, 30% mohair, 34% acrylic, 6% viscose. Very soft and pretty. It’s handwash/dry flat, so probably not the most practical choice for a child’s sweater anyway!
