first when i looked at this i did not know they were separate pieces. I laughed wondering how does she get into this sweater. Silly me. However this seems pretty simple to make on the the bond so I am going to give it a go. Here are my Thoughts. cast on the length and knit the width. This could be another ttd creation! No fairisle though maybe later even cabled!
Approximately 32” around at lower edge x 19½” long
Whatever to get you this size just make sure you swatch.
Cast on 19 ½ “knit 32” sew side seam. This is knit straight without the ribbing on the top or bottom or without the fairisle.
You could knit 1” ribbing then you would knit 1 inch convert to 2 x1 rib knit 30 inch straight knit 1 convert to 2x1 rib.

i think i have out done myself. i love the bows she has two older brothers so this was perfect it does not have her name but it represents all of the children. weaving in those ends was killer and it could be better. the ducks are not bad seeing that it was a knit chart. i will work on her name blanket while i am on vacation. next time put a skirt and pants on the ducks.

Another crack at the bat right from that casey at the bat poem. Anyway I just cannot admit defeat. So the plan is to just follow the knit pro pattern ch 96(98) and follow the chart. I do a whole bunch of planning. See i did three blankets lets see how many get done. Now this put sweet pea and her matching sweater on hold. the name blanket was plan A. Sweet Pea and Sweater were plan C. I get plan A to work no need for plan C!. Cross your fingers.
I am the epitomy of procrastination look up the word and you will see me. Now I know I have to have a blanket done before 9/13. I wanted it ready for today but of course i did not look at yarn until yesterday about 10pm. I was up all night trying to complete something . I did finish the duck fiasco (way wider and much shorter than the plan). I need to add the bills and the eyes. Instead of the doing a blanket with the name i am going to do a granny square blanket (sweet pea by lion brand) and hopefully a matching sweater. I got the idea from lion brand catalog. they had a pink and white sweater and then a sweet pea granny blanket to match. i thought that was cute but it is 56 squares. all of that before sunday! yeah! Well I do have 15 of 56. I am going to try and crank some more out at lunch. I am giving myself until thursady to be complete with both blankets and sweater. I may not present the duck fiasco. Oh but i did make two more neck scarves.
