SPOTTED a shop window in Munich, Germany.
A beautiful child's Bavarian jacket! This garter stitch classic is one I'm very familiar with... having made two of them about 20 years ago, one for myself and one my husband. I can't remember the pattern I used -perhaps it was this one by Elizabeth Zimmermann (although I know I modified it to make the sleeves a bit more roomy.)

I know we don't have the sweaters any longer - I think we wore them to death! But it was certainly a great "oh remember those awesome sweaters?" memory when we saw these yesterday out on a bustling sidewalk, alongside the dirndl dresses for little girls.
Want to make one for your child? Here's another EZ pattern worth checking out!

What cool things have YOU spotted recently?
