baby cardigan


So cute, eh?  Here's my lovely niece in a handmade crochet cardigan.  Much, much cuteness!

I made up the cardigan in Melbourne and it was a seriously laborious business.  I ended up having to frog it multiple times.  But I got there in the end!


The first version was very ribbed (as the pattern calls for using the front half of the stitches).  I wasn't pleased about how it was looking so redid it again from scratch.


I do like the colour combo.



The pattern has a really nice finish.  I really like the edging.



I managed to find a nice button for the front too.



Yarn and hook: Morris & Sons Avalon 4 ply 100% pima cotton in Amethyst and Sapphire on a 3.0mm hook
