FO: Simple But Chic Baby Cardigan - now with 2 sleeves!
See, look, it's a whole cardigan! Made out of sock yarn, no less. Click to embiggen the photo to see the detail of the cabled eyelet edging.
6 months size uses just less than one ball of SWTC Tofutsies. It's a terrific yarn for spring and summer-weight baby clothes. It's a cotton blend, it comes in great colours, it's machine washable, and you can't beat the price. Despite the small gauge, it's a quick and satisfying knit.
The pattern is available for purchase on Patternfish, Ravelry, and at The Purple Purl, and you will be able to see the sample at their booth at the Knitter's Frolic this weekend. (You'll also be able to buy the pattern and see the sample of the Noro Spring Blossom sock, too... )
Sized for 6, 12 and 18 months with a girl's and boy's variation. The boy's variation has a similar cable rib pattern, but without the eyelet.
(Which means I did have to work out the buttonhole positions after all... )
