I was a bit tardy in getting this one finished, and as such, the baby arrived just as I was dividing for the arms. The up side was that it meant I could knit in the relevant colour, rather than add a trim to the edging, as I had originally planned.
I used a top-down seamless raglan cardigan* pattern I found here.
For the edges, I used a two-tone alternating slip stitch, which I am thrilled with. I love the smocked look it created, and I'm really please with the two colours together.
It's Patons Dreamtime 4ply, which I used previously for my Oatmeal Baby Hoodie.
It comes in 50g balls, so it meant I used just over 1 ball of the main colour and a smidge of the contrast, with plenty of both left over for another cardigan if needed.
The other blank canvas have winged their way to bub's already, and somehow I didn't get finished photos :(
I really don't know how I managed to do it, and hopefully the kind mums will take some for me and send them back... (yes, that's a hint, guys!)
#1 was trimmed with pale pink and rose pink picot edging, and pink heart buttons, and #3 (which was finished before #2) was finished with apple green, because we-don't-need-to-always-assign -gender-by-colour-do-we?-and-besides-if-I-see-one-more-pink-thing
A mum after my own heart.
I think I managed to get Lily to age 2 without pink, no mean feat with the first granddaughter on both sides, let me tell you.
Now, of course, she will only wear pink, but I figure it'll pass, right?
