Woohoo! Another finished cardigan for little Elodie. I’m on a roll. This is actually the third baby kina I’ve knit but the first for Elodie. It’s such a sweet and easy pattern. Knit all in one piece from the top down. You just need to know how to knit, purl, increase and do some yarn overs for buttonholes. Great for beginners. I also love how modern it looks too.
I knit this in Bendigo Cotton 8 ply, the gorgeous colour is Blush. A very pretty coral colour that suits her perfectly. I knit this on a short 3.75mm circular needle rather than 4mm as I find the cotton doesn’t stretch as much eventhough the recommended needle size for the 8 ply cotton is 4mm. I also cast on with a smaller needle like a 3mm to get a nice cast on edge.
And now I’m ready to cast on another one for summer! You can never have too many sweet little cardigans when you are one. Ravelry details are here, yarn here and pattern available here.
I’d love to hear what you are knitting this summer………..
