Striped Shoulder Cardigan

I love how the stripes on this cardigan stand out even more because of the row of garter stitches dividing them.  Based on this Super-Natural Stripes pattern, but I only used 2 colors (Lion Brand Nature's Choice Organic Cotton in Curacao and Petits Fours) and kept the sleeves short.

The sweater may be a little bit wonky in a few places (ahem, I ran out of blue yarn so the last stripe on the sleeves is too thin, plus I think I picked up too many stitches on one side of the collar, so it hangs a little low), but I think it's pretty cute anyway and hopefully you won't notice the flaws once it's on a cute toddler, namely Zoe.
