Jolee Pink Ruffle Sweater
Jolee Hand Knit Pink Ruffle Sweater for Little GirlThis adorable little sweater caught my eye recently when I stopped in at my LYS. One of the owners of the shop designed and knit it for her friend's toddler girl. It looked so yummy I asked if she would be willing to share the pattern on my website, and she agreed.

If you enjoy this pattern, you can have it for free of course. But, if you are willing to add a drop in the bucket (so to speak) it will help just a little bit in covering some of the expenses involved in operating the blog and website.
