Well this may be the fastest sweater ever!

I love this sweater it took only 4 days from start to finish.(approximately 90 minutes each night) the pattern was a breeze! a perfect last minute knit if you have a baby shower to go to!
I made the 6-12 month size, and used less than 100g of yarn! Look...I even put the buttons on!
I’m sure I’ll be making another one soon! maybe two!

very cute I love the little pocket on the sleeve.
Ellie is a cute pattern can't wait to see how it works up, but will you be making three??? :)

Wow what a super fast knit that was. The color seems to look grey on my screen. I love Sirdar patterns and their yarn seems to go a long way and is so soft. Your ellie elephant kit looks cute, do you use all 3 colors to knit her.

What a cute sweater. Where can I get this pattern? I tried looking for it on google, but was unable to find it. My cousin is expecting her first grandson and this would be perfect for me to make.

@ Alice the pattern is from the book Sirdar 297, Cheeky Chinos. Hope you can find it, it's full of lovely patterns!
