2011 - Item 5

Pattern: Tiny Tea Leaves cardigan
Size: largest
Yarn: Spotlight 8 ply pure wool, dark teal (about 8 balls)
Needles: 4.5mm and 4mm circs
This cardigan was so easy to knit and turned out so cute too. Isabelle did not appreciate having to put it on in this hot weather so this is the shot I got. I have a feeling that she will probably grow out of it by the time winter comes around looking at the sleeves now! Proof also that not all models have good days, lol!

Love that shot! Can't believe how grown up Isabelle is looking. She was just a wee one when I first started reading your blog! :)

It is lovely and I think Isabelle's expression is very funny!! Can you add length to the sleeves???

Karin said...

It's a lovely cardigan. Tell her the sleeves are bracelet length. I think its a cardigan that will still look really nice even with 3/4 sleeves. Some girls prefer it.

Looks like she grew it already out! But - you can always add few rounds on the sleeves!

That coloure is great (says someone who is not a fan of blue)

I love it! I love her funny facial expression. It looks cozy to me, but it's freezing on this side of the world.

It is lovely and 3/4 sleeves seem to be the in thing so come winter they still will be fashionable.

Adorable! She looks so happy! I am making this for my granddaughter in purple for Easter.
