The Baby Cardigan that took seven attempts to get the pattern right is here. My baby brain finally realised that I was Yarn Forward and K1 at the same time so on a repeat of 8 stitches I was actually working 10
Hence the cardigan was never going to work and my first 6 attempts were in complete and utter vain.
I have always been terrified of trying to knit or crochet an item of clothing all that sewing up just scares the bejesus out of me.
And than there’s the kniting patterns, what in the world do the say
and whats this about tension
Oh god quick put it in the too hard basket
quick before your brain explodes
But in actuall fact this cardigan was a breeze to make (that is after I realised why it wasn’t working the first 6 times)
It has a lovely lacy pattern down the bottom and across the arms as well
When you work this pattern right it is very simple and quick.
The pattern is from Cool Knits for Kids and you can find it here
It’s a great book with lots of other things I would love to try.
I loved this pattern for all it’s gorgeous deatil it fastens on the inside with a button and than does up with a pretty little bow on the side
The cardigan is meant to all be one colour but I ran out of wool
and as this wool was an op shop find I couldn’t find any the same so I used contrasting purple
I like the result it works with the pretty ribbon
What do you think?
This cardigan has already been given to the mother to be
and i think she loved it lots
though I now have 3 weeks to knit another one
she’s having twins
so I’m off now to cast on a beautiful duffle coat
wish me luck
I’ll have my fingers crossed.
Hope you all are enjoying some sun
we have been having a touch of spring here it’s been lovely
