2008 - FO No 26





Pattern: Design A Cardigan from Little Sweet Peas book 332

Started: May 2008 Finished 26 June 2008

Size: 6-7 years, used 5 balls of Sirdar Snuggly yarn

This cardigan is the first time I have really attempted a lacey pattern. It drove me crazy for the first repeat as I kept making a mistake in one row. After that it all went smoothly, apart from the fact that I didnt read the collar pattern properly so there are no garter ridges on the edge of the collar. When I have time I will have to get a photo of Isabelle in it so you can see how it fits. I absolutely love this one so I hope it wears well. It is not too thick so she should be able to wear it during summer over some dresses without getting a chill. Now off to knit some more. Have a great day!
