The Eyelet Cardigan
Hello! I just thought that since I had some time that I would pop in and show off another project that I finished last week. This is the Waistcoast and Cardigan pattern from Sirdar Pamphlet 1401. I knit it with a gorgeous dark teal color which turned out beautifully. The only problem was this was the first time the yarn had actually run and I ended up with dark green blotches on my towel where it was blocking, and after another wash and rinse it seemed back to normal. The construction on this little cardigan is to knit the body and then seam it together, thus leaving space for the sleeves to be set in. Once I understood it it was much easier to put together. I am hoping my niece will grow into it soon so she can wear it through winter as she is such a petite little baby!
