Teo’s Tomten Sweater~ 2013

 My little buddy Teo is growing so very fast. 
He is just 5 months old, yet is a big boy!
This sweater is a 4T~! Of course he has a lot of room to grow in it.
Yet another sweater by the amazing Elizabeth Zimmerman, this customized Tomten Sweater is perfect for a growing boy. (Ravelry Pattern Link)
Yarn is Northampton by Valley Yarns, color is Fawn.
5 st/in. on sz. 7  needles.
The custom button band is inspired by and knit from
the Latte Baby Coat pattern (Ravelry Link) by Lisa Chemery.
I decided to make an icord edge, I love how it cleans up the edges of the garter stitch 
and it completed the woven pattern nicely.
Buttons are from my Gram’s button tin.
As he grows, we can move the buttons closer to the left edge, to give him 2 more inches around.
The garter stitch will stretch as he grows, and will give the needed length.
Sleeves are rolled up for now.

My favorite part of this sweater? The hood!
I love the decreases at the back of the neck and the gnomey peak.
Love to see how this sweater will grow with Teo.
