Major Modification Time
Okay, let's suppose that I'm a glutton for punishment and I'm about to majorly modify an hourglass sweater for my 4 yo niece. Would you do it? Here's what I want to do:
1. add a cable up the center of each sleeve, two in the front, and one on the hood.
2. add a hood.
3. steek it (which I've never done) and add a zipper in the middle, in between the two front cables.
Would you do it? Should I? I guess I'd need to take out the decrease/increase part since she's obviously not curvy.
I don't mind using another pattern, but I can't find one with all the right components, and I'm not good enough to write my own pattern from scratch. Any advice?
I'm using the indentical-to-Malabrigo worsted merino from eBay that I used for my own hourglass, so I'll have to really knock down the number of stitches in the whole pattern for a 4 yo. Yikes. This is getting more involved as I type! LOL Anybody know of a child's pattern that would save me all this grief???
