The Tiny Tomten! =)

I have wanted to knit a Elizabeth Zimmerman-pattern for a long time - and now I have finally made it! =)

It`s a baby Tomten knitted in 2 colors - main color is a dark brown with details in a purply blue. I am very happy with how it turned out! Love the colours! =)

I knitted an I-cord ending around the body and hood. I have never used that technique before, but it turned out surprisingly well, I think! I had to frogg it the first time, because it looked better on the wrong side... So I started over from the wrong side, and now the right side looks great! =)
























Pattern: Tomten by Elizabeth Zimmerman. I have used the pattern found in her book Knitting Without Tears.
Usage: Ca. 74 gr dark brown New Zealand lambswool and ca. 24 gr. blue New Zealand lambswool - 98 gr total.

Measures:
- body 25 cm across the chest
- body 30 cm long
- sleeves from pick-up 23 cm and from body 18 cm
- sleeves around sholders 22 cm and around wrist 15 cm

Size:
About 3 months to 1 year? I am not sure…
I casted on 128 stitches on 3mm needles.


This was a fun knit, and I will definetly try to knit more Tomtens.
