Remember the baby sweater I botched a couple of weeks ago? It's finally off the needles:
I've said it before, and I'll probably say it again, but I just love this pattern which is called the Blossoms and Bowties Baby Cardigan. I think this is the fourth one I've knit. Instructions are given for bulky weight and worsted weight yarn and I've made the sweater with both types. I prefer the worsted weight but if you use bulky, you can easily knit the entire sweater in a weekend. Well, unless you totally screw it up like I did last month.
I changed the pattern a bit this time, working garter edges instead of the chevron cuffs and lower edge. See my double-start cast on at the bottom edge?? You gotta love that double-start cast on.
Tell me the truth; what do you think of the buttons?
They're plastic (nice plastic) covered with a thin layer of leather. Are they too old-mannish for a baby?? Seriously, do they scream "Grandpa"?
And what else did I do today? Well, here's a hint. It involved opening many, many Rubbermaid bins.
