This sweater is much more attractive in person - it's soft and cozy, and the colors much more muted. The pattern posted online ( is missing several steps, so I improvised the sleeve lengths and trim. I suspect the sleeves alone should be gathered, but I added a border to the bottom edge and a slight decrease to the neckline. It's a baby bomber jacket?

It's spring, but it doesn't quite feel like it. We've had an inch of rain (so far) today. Here's a quick winter gift that's great for using up scraps of yarn. Search for "sweet little mittens" on ravelry to find the pattern.
