Another Budgie!

Yes, thats right another budgie sweater! I made two for his brother (one here and the other here) so I didn't want him to feel left out, plus I really enjoy this project. Although I must admit that what drew me to this project has also become what makes it take me so long to finish it. The ZIPPER, I actually finished knitting this well before Christmas but could not bring myself to put that dang zipper in. The only thing that finally pushed me into putting the zipper in was the warm weather that is going to hopefully be here very soon. Once I broke down and sewed it in, it really only took about 15 min. or so (smacks head).

The Low Down:
Yarn: Malabrigo Rios and Mountain Colors Rover Twist 1 Skien of each
Gauge: 5 Stitches = 1 inch
Modifications: This was also knit from the top using my modifications from this post.
I knit it at a larger gauge so I really just followed the instructions for the 18-24 month size. I think it comes out to be a long 4T size.
