Dancing Children

Here is my dancing children seamless yoke sweater. It is going to be a Christmas present. The recipient will probably wear it as a jacket. I do enjoy the process of finding patterns to knit. The yoke is always fun with the decreases. I worked with blending the decreases into the patterns and was able to add short rows to the back blended in as well. I used fisherman's wool with Patons. I used simple wood buttons. It turned out a little bigger than planned, which is better than smaller. The front was sewn and cut, I think the ribbed edge looks good. Next time I will have to watch EZ's video on button holes, mine turned out fine but I think they could look better.
