Micro sweater

The sheep is disgusted by the amount of cotton knitting that goes on here. Micro sweater. 2 1/2 inches wide by 4 inches tall.
No pattern to speak of, just fooling around with the basic construction of a raglan sweater as a practice run for Christmas. Knit of scraps of Sugar and Cream on size 6 needles. The sweater is cute, but the neck is way too small ;)

The yoke was an unvention of slip stitch patterning, of which I had heard but had no practical knowledge. I'm not sure you could call it an unvention even, as just the name of the technique gives it away. Worked way better than two colors at a time for me.

That is so cool! Does it fit your Strawberry Shortcake?
