A sweater for Colton would be a good idea, and the pattern I used was sized 2T. Colton turns one next week, but he is a big boy. Still, I didn't expect the sweater to fit him now. It is a bit longer than what he would normally wear, but it will be fine this spring and hopefully work in the fall also.
I used Plymouth Encore yarn which is a wool and acrylic blend. I love this yarn for its ease of care (machine wash gentle, tumble dry) and the feel of it is good too. We tried it on over his jammies the other night so I don't have a photo of him wearing it yet. At that point I didn't have the buttons yet. Buttons were bought the next day and here is the finished cardigan.
Being a totally smitten grandma, here are the professional photos of the Prince of Sweetness (he'll hate me for that title one day, won't he?) commemorating being one year old. His mommy's sister-in-law took these and I think she did a great job. Not that I'm partial or anything.
And one last photo because I have a captive audience...
