New Sweater!

I made a new sweater for my 4 year old. It's adapted from the free Humbug Sweater Pattern.
I added the striping and the intarsia skull and crossbones. This was my first real intarsia and it was a very good first intarsia project, small. Really, it was easy, I just couldn't do it with my kids around. There was a lot of finishing work that needed to be done around the hood and pocket, but in the end it looks really beautiful! The only two things I would do differently are make the hood a little taller, and make the pocket bigger and raise it a few rows. All in all, very pleased! And most importantly, he loves it!
