This was a lovely little knit, and it didn't take too long at all. I'm sending this over to my friend in the UK for her little girl turning one in early December.

A close up of the buttons - aren't they pretty. I recently had a stock up on buttons via a seller on Trademe.
I used The Wool Company's double knit Watermelon, which actually looks quite pink in these colours and knitted the 1-3 year old size.
I've already cast on my next project, the same pattern but this time using Mixed Berry, a blend of purple and red colours.
