Sonja’s crocheted sweater

I finished crocheting a sweater for Sonja!

It’s made with a variegated yarn that she picked at the craft store, purple, blue, green and white.

And she picked purple buttons too.

I knew the yarn was thicker than what the pattern called for, but I followed a 2T pattern and hoped it would fit Sonja who’s 3T.

Anyways, it was a nail biter at the end, because I could see the yarn running out of the last skein.

THIS is how much I had left when the sweater was done!

(Now I did have a plan in my head about what to do if I was just a little bit short, but luckily that didn’t happen)

One for Baby and one for Sonja.
