Rhinebeck Sweater based on Elizabeth Zimmermann Percentage System from Knitting without Tears and Knitting Workshop.
Quince & Co Chickadee colors—there is orange (Poppy)! Ridges of garter stitch add interest. The more colors you use the more you can get away with!
· Divided box from Harry and David (pears)
· Smaller size on yoke. Went down a needle size in addition to fewer stitches.
· Button band and neck band. Steeked the sweater and then knit front bands—was too long. Talked with Angie/Silverbell and decided to go down 3 needle sizes. Love this tighter gauge on the band!
· Used short rows on neck back so it tapers from front to back.

Added some length to the foot so should fit 6 mo to 1 year. Did not do as much color work because it is less stretchy.
Reading other people's notes it seems these might not be the most practical booties but they sure are quick to knit and the cuteness factor is over the top.
