Maile Sweater

One of two baby gifts is completed and ready to be mailed.  I knit Nikki Van De Car's Maile Sweater and love it! I think the recipient will be happy.

 I really like how the lacy details goes all the way around the bottom of the sweater, and the laciness at the shoulders.

The raglan decrease at the back of the sweater made a nice detailed effect too.

The sweater is actually bright yellow as depicted in the first picture, showing the front of the sweater. When I found this pattern on Ravelry, I thought there was only one size; the size given, however as I got near the end of the sweater things were not adding up correctly, so I went to Nikki's blog for help. There I found errata for the pattern and discovered that there are actually three sizes to this pattern. Nikki shares only one size on Ravelry, the other sizes are in her book. She does give corrections for all the sizes, however, on her blog.  Now, that I know the corrections and made it through the odd way Nikki has you attach the sleeves, I would make this sweater again. It really is adorable.

Pattern is here on Ravelry and the corrections are found here on Nikki's "What to Knit When" blog. Do yourself a favor and read through both before you start knitting. 

The sweater took less than a skien of fingering weight yarn.
