More knitting

It is interesting to see how different a pattern looks in another colour. I used the same pattern as for the jacket in my Knitting for fun post, but changed from a dark blue to a medium green. I added novelty buttons. As this is for a child under two years old teddy bears are not out of place. However they are rather fiddly as the limbs sometimes catch on the yarn. I’m sure his parents will manage, but this is not a good idea for self-dressers!

I shortened the sleeves (by knitting fewer rows) in the hope of a better fit.
