I ended up using two different green yarns that I thought were the same color. They look like they are too in every lighting we have had them in until I looked at the sweater through the lens of my camera- then they look different. Oh well!!
this cardigan pattern again but I really changed it by flaring it a little under the armpits and changing the stitch style too. I also choose to only have it have two top buttons.
I also used that same sweater pattern but on a smaller scale and connected it up the front to make a pullover sweater for my niece's American Girl doll.
