2011 - FO NO. 17


Girl's Red Cardi designed by Tikki
This cardigan was another test knit for Tikki.  I absolutely loved knitting this pattern for Isabelle.  I knit mine in Zara yarn, 9 balls to be exact which was great as I have had this yarn in my stash for quite a few years.  I now have 2 balls leftover to knit something lovely.  I have to say this is one of my favourite patterns with the simple lace front borders and the gatherings in the sleeves and waist area, very sweet and pretty.  I do hope that she releases this pattern soon so that you can all enjoy it and knit it for your little girls in your lives.  Thank you too for all the wonderful comments on the last test knit I did - I havent really had much time to respond to you all but I do hope to by the end of the weekend!

Gorgeous colour.
I am so sorry to have had to pass up testing this one but I'll knit it while we are away I think.
