Another cute cardigan

Standard

I wrote this post up yesterday and set it to publish in a few days time – but as soon as I hit the schedule button it lost all the text! I couldn’t face re-writing it again straight away, but thought I’d do a slightly abbreviated version for you today.

Some of you may remember that I made a cardigan for as a birthday present for a┬álovely Little Girl back in April. Well, it was her sister’s first birthday last week and I thought I’d make another one!

Thankfully it doesn’t take long to make as I only started it on Monday and her birthday was on Wednesday!

Because I was less organised this time around I didn’t have time to order more of the cotton yarn I used before, so used some good old Stylecraft Special DK. I wanted to make it a little different (I didn’t think Little Girl would be too impressed at being made to wear the same thing as her Baby Sister!) so added a different type of flower.

And I added scalloped edges to the sleeves too.

I finished it off with a nice green button.

You can buy the pattern here. It’s not very expensive and I feel I’m getting my money’s worth – I’ve made 2 cardigans and I can see me making more in the future too!
