Wee cardigans

I got a commission over Christmas to knit two more of these wee short sleeved cardigans for my little niece Kate. Apparently she's nearly grown out of the last two that I knit due to (i) her growing and (ii) my sister achieving what I thought was the near impossible feat of felting Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino.

The pattern is (once again) the snappily titled 0-684 Baby Cardigan with Short/Long Raglan Sleeves. The first one is knit in Artesano Merino dk (I only just found out they do wool as well as alpaca) and the second is in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino in a rather fabulous red.

The buttons are from John Lewis and are clear plastic with a tiny flower design which makes them very easy to match to any yarn.

I'll try to get pictures of Kate wearing these once they're delivered. In the meantime here's a shot of her with some of her bunny friends.

What sweet cardigans and niece. I'm sure they will look lovely on - the red especially.

Kate looks lovely with her bunnies, and your wee cardigans are beautiful and carefully made, as ever. Happy Christmas and hurrah for lucky nieces and talented Aunts! x
