Charles (FO)

Finally, after aaaages languishing in my knitting bag, toddler Charles is finished. All sewn up with buttons and everything!  

I love it. For some reason the plain sleeves and self-patterning body appeal to me. (For the record I love the contrasting sleeve/body combo in the first one too). It's neat. I still find the neck finishing a bit of a faff, but didn't find any obvious way of improving it this time round.

Pattern: toddler Charles (size 1-2 years) from Jaeger book JB29

Yarn: Regia sock yarn (self patterning); Patons diploma gold 4ply (plain raspberry)

Mods: have made the body slightly longer than suggested in the pattern, just to try and extend wear.

Notions: pink heart buttons from the stash.
