Sandbox Cardi and Hat Reviewed by Linnet Schouten on 2010-07-30 **
I found it knit up very quickly and gave me a good idea of how a sweater comes together, but I wouldn't make it again as I had a few troubles on how it fit and where the button holes were. It is a very thick knit but was too thick and big (on US 13) for the 1 year old I made it for. The sweater also came out boxy, a bit too short, but sleeves were long enough. I loved working with this yarn.

I don't like the buttonholes the way the instructions indicate. They look like holes in the middle of the front.

Made the cardi in 9-month size. Good instructions -- the finishing details really make this sweater.

Sandbox Cardi and Hat Reviewed by Sarah Wirth on 2009-08-31 ***
I only made the hat and increased the stiches to 50, as I was making it for a 5-year-old. I feel that casting on 44 stitches would have been plenty even for kid-size hat. Also, next time I make it, I will decrease more gradually, rather than starting with an entire row of K2tog, as I felt it was a boxy on top. On the positive side, the yarn in the rib and garter stitch look adorable. The hat did turn out cute, but could be cuter with a few tweaks.
