  1. Thank you for the very clear instructions and video. I have been asked to make a couple sweaters for friends and was getting very nervous since I have never made sweaters and could not find any easy instructions that I could understand. So thank you again.

  2. Thanks so much for the pattern and tutorial. I made the 3-6 month size in yellow with the collar…it is so cute! All I need to do is to sew on the buttons. Love your accent–reminds me of hone in NYC. Thanks again 😀
