This one has been finished and gifted, so it’s time for a blog post.
And here’s a better shot of the sweater. It’s hard to take pictures of babies if they don’t want their picture taken.
Pattern: Buttoned up Cardi
Yarn: Cotton Ease, in Cherry Red
Needles: 5.00 mm
Started and Finished within the past two weeks
For: a coworker’s grandson
What I learned: I still love Cotton Ease for baby things. The bonus is that it’s machine washable.
Pattern Rating: This is a really easy pattern, all garter stitch. I made a few modifications. The pattern calls for picking up stitches and knitting the sleeves, I just cast on the right amount of stitches and then sewed them in. I remembered to put in the buttonholes on this one. And I made it just a bit longer than the pattern called for.
