Little Red Rascal

I finished this just before I caught that awful 'flu bug and have only just got around to sewing on the buttons.

It's knitted in Sirdar Tiny Tots DK and has a simple cable running up the front and back, although you can't really see it in these photos. The cable actually shows up much better IRL. It was very quick to knit and took just 4 days to finish.

I'm not overly fond of the hood (I've never been a big fan of hoods) but my son likes it and that's the main thing. He chose the pattern and the colour of the yarn - all I need to do now is teach him how to knit and we're sorted!

Christina - my other half has tidied up and I can't find the pattern now *rolls eyes*! I'll try and find it and let you know the pattern number. :)
