Mum made the pattern up though.

Whoops, scratch that. I've just re-checked an you have 200 g. The wee willie pattern suggests 300 g for size 18 month so you won't have enough yarn. You could adapt for a vest maybe? Anyway, I have the pattern book if you want to borrow it.
I LOVE that neckline, in my ideal world I'd have something with that neckline, a nice cable pattern to make it extra special and knit in the round... because i know knitting flat and seaming just won't happen here... it would sit for yonks waiting for me to be bothered seaming :lol:

Maybe I just need to make something up? don't want to bugger it up with the nice yarn though!
Have you seen this? http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library ... hy-sweater It has a similar neckline, cable and in the round .... and you should 'just" have enough yarn i think
