I’m in San Francisco for a couple of days staying with my brother and his family and seeing my niece Solveig for the first time. Here she’s wearing the sweater I made for her on the plane–it’s a modular pullover made from Malabrigo Chunky –just two balls!

Solveig loves to roll around on the floor–she rolls until she reaches an impediment, then starts rolling the other direction, so I’ve been calling her “Roomba.”

I didn’t have her measurements, so I really got lucky on the sizing. The neckline is a simple half double crochet shell.

Here’s a detail of the button I used to close the neck in the back: (I found it at Imagiknit, a nice yarn shop in the Castro district of San Francisco).

I left the seaming on the right side of the garment because I like the way it looked.
