Endre in his elephant sweater :)

elephant5


An elephant was balanced
atop a spider’s web,

when she saw that it held her
she called on another.
Two elephants balanced
atop a spider’s web,
when they saw that it held them
they called on a third.

Three elephants…
Four elephants…
Five elephants…
etc.

It's done :) And first of all, thank you so much for all of your good advise about the color! I knitted it blue as you can see ;) And Endre is very satisfied with it. He's been counting elephants ;)

I was a little afraid that it would be to big, but it fits him just perfect. The sleeves are a bit long, but I know how these kids grow, so it's good to have something to grow into ;)

Pattern: I've based the sweater on a regular raglan sweater pattern from this booklet, just adding some extra st to make the elephant chart go up.
Yarn: Viking baby ull & Viking Edda, the white is Silja. 150 g grey and 50 g of each of the other colors. I've used yarn from my stash, so there is two shades of blue ;)
Needles: 2,5 & 3 mm
Size: Since I had to add more st and knit the sleeves and the body a bit longer to make the stripe pattern to go up, I guess this is more a size 5/6 year than a 4/5 year that I had in mine..

One more picture just because :) And Endre looks more and more like his bigbrother Erlend :)

  11. It's such a cute sweater on such a cute and proud little boy. Thank you for your nice comment about Paige. I thought she looked nice too, but there's nothing like the enthusiasm you get from little ones, Endre's age, when they receive handknit sweaters, especially with elephants on them.
