Comments: I like this pattern a lot. I had trouble with one little stitch - the top of each heart is a k4tog, and I discovered two or three times, when casting off a piece, that I had dropped one of these four stitches as I was knitting them together. For some reason, the infamous Nylon Squeak wasn't as bad with this sweater. I liked the pattern better, too - much faster to knit and to finish. I would make this again, no problem, for another lucky little girl. Emily's will fit her for a couple of years, because I made the 3-4 size and, as I've noticed, Sirdar sizes are slightly generous.
Once again, may I draw your attention to the side seam?
And the side seam in moss:

And how cute are these two together? (I mean the sweaters, obviously...)
