Cardigan for Darcie part 1
I wanted to knit a couple of cardigans for my cousins, daughter Darcie. The first pattern I wanted to try out is Maytime by Kim Hargreaves from a book called Rowan babies. It is knitted in James Brett supreme gentle 4ply. I am not a fan of acrylic but this one knits up well, it's really soft. It's a lovely combination of crochet and knit. I loved using crochet edging instead of picking up lots of knit stitches. For more details of the pattern and yarn see my Ravelry page.
I love the crocheted picket edging around the neck and sleeves...
It was great fun making the little granny squares!
I love knitting small people's clothes, they are so cute!
I will follow this up with the second cardigan from the same pattern book, watch this space...
