Hanne Falkenberg's designs--her play with lines and construction is amazing, and fun to knit. Unfortunately, even though my Dacapo came out perfectly sized, for some reason I had a hard time getting the proper row gauge on this one. This sweater is knit in two halves. I knit the first half and found it would be too small, so I went up a needle size and knit the second half, thinking I'd then decide which half was the best one to keep, and I'd reknit a third, matching half accordingly. Interestingly, both first halves, while on different needle sizes, were nearly identical, so I finished the sweater using both and gave it to a petite friend. The coloring is perfect on her--I think it was meant to be hers from the start. Someday I’d like to reknit this in another colorway for myself (in a larger size!).

My friend Sarah has posted her notes for a two-color version of Baby Brioche. Go look, if only to see how adorable her Ada is. Sarah's variation is ingenious as it allows one to knit a garment for either gender (if you care about such things) and/or allows for quick costume changes. Thanks for sharing your notes, Sarah!
