When my little man was a little less than a year old, his first Easter was coming up and I knew I had to make him something cute! It gets pretty warm here in spring, so I knew a full hat was out of the question, not to mention a cardigan or anything else thick and bulky! After a bit of thinking and some playing around with stitches, I came up with one of my favorite creations! Partly because its just cute, and partly because his smiles in these pictures are priceless! 🙂
