Grandson's blue sweater

R. will be three years old in April. I am knitting this sweater in size 4, which will be large as he is not a particularly big child, but better that it is big for him. I love the Pingouin children's patterns from 30 years ago, so I am using a pattern that I last knit for my nephew D. about 23 years ago.

My faint pencilled notes at the bottom of the page show that I knit this for D. in size 12 and he is now 25.

This is the same yarn in a lighter shade of blue that I used for my older brother's socks at Christmas.

We progress!
