I am an intermediate beginner and I would like to knit a fall/spring sweater for my 7 year old niece, and I am trying to figure out what I should use. Here are my guidelines
I don’t want to use Acrylic,
Needs to be next to skin soft
minimal to no pilling, maintains shape
prefer machine washing, but that might be just too much to ask.
If it is hand wash I will be the one washing it, not my sister.
If my niece likes it it will be worn out about the time she grows out of it.
Keeping the budget under $100 for yarn and prefer under $75 for the sweater.
Let me know your thoughts. Thanks in advance everyone.
