We may still have a few hot days of summer yet, but Fall is around the corner – I can feel it in the air – and with that returns my fervent desire to create warm clothing! It must be a survival instinct :)
At the same time, I don’t have a lot of free time. I’m trying to finish my Masters in the next 2-3 months, which will be a challenge to say the least. So, small projects it is. I decided to make a sweet baby sweater for the 5 month old daughter of my good friends. It was an extremely easy pattern to follow, and well worth the few dollars I paid to the designer (the pattern link is here on the Ravelry.com website).
For the 6 month old size, I used 1 skein (only a metre or two left in the end!) of Knit Picks Swish Tonal yarn, in the Summer Blooms colourway, with US 8 (5.0 mm) needles. To finish the cardigan I added 3 wooden buttons with a heart design. I’ll have to get the baby to model the sweater this Fall, but for now I’ll share these pictures. :)
