bsj by 11yo dd

my daughter made this bsj for her 3yo sis. i couldn't help at all, never having made a bsj myself. she used fisherman's yarn and scrap yarns from the stash. she followed ez's instructions; her gauge was 4spi.

she was worried that it might not fit right; it looks fine, even if the sleeves *could* be longer.



  • Gorgeous! Love the color choices. And the sleeves look just the right length for a busy 3yr old. Really nice work. You have inspired me to make one now. Happy New Year!

  • How sweet of your older daughter to make that sweater for her little sister...she did a magnificent job!

  • So cute! And I agree with Mary, active girls need shorter cuffs.

  • Marvelous job! Hurray for Older Sister! When I was 12 (I had been knitting for a year) I told my mom I wanted to knit a sweater for my new baby cousin. My mom responded, "YOU can't knit a BABY SWEATER". It set back my knitting career for a few years, until I got that dent out of my self-esteem. So I'm double cheered to see this project!

  • Wow! What an accomplishment! There should be no apologies for the sleeves, my 16 year old is wearing this shape and sleeve length.
