sweet little blue

this is the new cardigan i finished for little O over the weekend, we're both rather pleased with how it turned out


i used some 'sidar click aran with wool' i got from kemps clearance, it knitted up using much less yarn than i had thought it would need, i only used about 30g of the third ball, the pattern was very easy & because i used aran weight it also knitted up quite quickly,  the pattern was easy to adapt, i added extra rows to the main body & sleeves & also did less of the a-line increase, to give it a more subtle a-line shape


having knitted this once, i would knit it again, maybe a more colourful version next time (i would also quite like to size the pattern up & make one for myself) details found over here on ravelry

  2. Little O looks gorgeous as a model (and the cardi's pretty good too!) What a great pattern. Pity I don't have any little girls to knit it for.

  7. Hi Kelly - thanks for the comment. I bought a great book called Around the Corner Crochet Borders by Edie Eckman. I used part of one and then adapted it by adding the final row of cluster...the same as in the circles. I would def recommend this little book....lots of really exiting borders!! xx PS if you by it, remember it is American so make the necessary adjustments
