Little Coffee Bean Sweater!
My friend Kelaine is collecting handknits for a charity auction to benefit cancer research, so I thought I'd take some time off from evening Etsy work and whip up something cute. I didn't need to knit it in two days, but I thought it would be best to take advantage of the upswing in my knitting mojo.
The pattern is called Little Coffee Bean and was super fun to knit. It's your basic top down raglan, with cute stripes to keep you interested. I used two fantastic vegan yarns for this project, the brown is Cotton Ease in Taupe and the blue is Knit Picks' Simply Cotton Worsted (organic cotton) in Wave Heather, both of which I had in my yarn stash. I was also lucky enough to have these cute orange buttons in my knitting supplies, so I managed to make this cutie with 100% materials I already had on hand, bonus!
