LYS - Little Yellow Sweater! I think, quite possibly a more important staple in ones wardrobe than a little black dress. Amiright??

Now - what color to knit one in next??

*In purchasing this product you will receive a .pdf pattern for the pictured item so that you can knit them up yourself, not the actual finished item.
