Cowl Neck Bimaa Sweater

Last spring I saw the most adorable cowl neck shirt on Sarah's blog EmmylouBeeDoo. I'm a sucker for a cowl neck, and a cowl neck on a little girl? Who could resist that?!? I told Sarah that I was definitely making one this fall, and in September, I did.

I love this shirt! It is the most adorable thing ever! This one is for my three and a half year old, and I'm currently in the process of cutting fabric to make one for my oldest, too. You would not believe the number of compliments my daughter has received when she wears this shirt.

The Bimaa Sweater PDF pattern comes in six nested sizes  12 months all the way up to a size 6  with three different options: cowl neck, shawl collar, and hoodie. I was amazed at how easily this shirt went together. Knits can be so tricky, but this shirt was a breeze. The banded waistband and cuffs are quickly becoming a favorite of mine... much easier than hemming. I found the pattern to be true to size (note that this shirt is designed to have a slim fit).

The fabric came from JoAnn's. I have a really hard time finding knits that I like at JoAnn's, and honestly I wasn't a big fan of this one when my daughter first picked it out, but it turned into such a sweet little shirt.

This pattern is available in Sarah's Etsy shop, LouBeeClothing. It really is an amazing pattern. (I just want to add that I was not compensated for this post. I paid for the pattern myself, and I'm so glad I did :)

That really looks cute on her! Love it! I was just thinking about you when I pulled out my 'winning' pillow from you with my fall decorations. It's still looking beautiful! Thanks again!
