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!

Size:  6-12 months
Yarn:  Sirdar Snuggly DK 1.5 balls
Needle Size: 4mm and 3 1/4mm

Oh that is just so pretty and so unusual. I think bluer wools and clothes tend to lose their colour more easily.

That's beautifully knitted, I'm sure your neice will look lovely in it when she's a bit bigger! You've finished oads of projects recently, you're making me feel guilty...slow down a bit!! :-)
