I love this pattern and the colour range of Paintbox Yarns, so I decided to give this one a go. I do not normally knit in acrylic or Aran/10ply yarn so it is a bit of a trial to see how it wears and how suitable/comfortable it is for wearing for a little girl. It feels more like a winter jacket in this weight, and I had next winter in mind which is Dec-Mar where Sarah lives. I found it more difficult to sew up neatly than I expected in this thicker yarn and with it knitted in garter stitch, but I am pleased with it now! I used a bigger sized knitting needle to get the correct gauge. I ended up knitting three tension squares with 4.5mm, 5.0mm and 6.00mm needles, and settling on 6.00mm / UK 7 knitting needles and knitting one size up to get the garment measurements to work out. It was quite challenging to choose seven colours that I hoped would go well together from a laptop screen when you cannot lay the balls of yarn side by side. I ended up sending for one change in colour!
