I have been working on this little jumper (sweater) for awhile - jumpers take wayyy longer than toys. And I do find freestyling easier than following patterns.
Many stages I had to reknit a few times until I got it right. After hood and arm tops I had enough of any future direction and just knit straight down, blending towards green from blue.
Ocean to forest. For a 4 year old (so very oversize for the baby I knitted it for but she looks chunky so will grow into it soon!)
