I was never planning on making cardigans when I decided to start selling knitted and crocheted items. They take hours to make and generally don’t sell for the time taken. I saw a simple one in a Debbie Bliss knitting book and decided to make it as it was for toddlers. It’s in a very fine cashmere yarn and still isn’t finished, but is getting there.
Kara from Chelsea Mamma who has bought from me before when I was Mrs. Dressup, asked on Twitter if anyone knew where she could get some cardigans for her 18 month old little girl. (Where has the time gone? The first thing I made for Kara was a 1 year sized Tutu for her!) and I asked her what she wanted. She looked on Ravelry.com and picked out 2 cardigans. Below is the first one.
And being modelled by the lovely Miss Chelsea Mamma –
The other is almost half-done – it’s in navy blue and will be covered in crocheted flowers in yellow and white. No pink in sight….. 🙂 Photos of that one will show up soon….
Both will be in my Etsy Shop- I may as well, I’ve learned the patterns!
