Child's Placket Neck Sweater

One of the first knitting books I owned was Joelle Hoverson's  Last-Minute Knitted Gifts.  As far as knitting books go, it has become a bit of a modern legend.  In the pages are patterns I've come back to on multiple occasions.

 The Child's Placket Neck Sweater was a new one for me, and as always, it did not disappoint.  If you have the first printing of the book like I do, you need to be careful of the errata.  The pattern has quite a few mistakes, so you can now find the pattern for free online here.

Although my sweater is still lacking buttons (I think some little orange ones will get the job done), I figured I would share it before the paper towel holder had to return to its normal job:

I used Knit Pick's Swish DK Yarn in Delft Heather and may be convinced that it is one of the greatest yarns for children's knitting.  Besides coming in a great variety of colors and being soft to boot, it's also superwash, which makes it great for giving as gifts.
