snuck one more in!
another little cardigan, for my little one in Scotland. Same pattern as the last two, with yet another modification, just to keep it interesting (for me!)
I added another couple of rows to each "layer" and instead of decreasing on the last one for the final garter stitch band, I kept the greater number of stitches to produce a flounce for the finish
the yarn is The Knittery's Merino/Cashmere (OLD) in "Cherries". There is some particularly lovely variegation between pale pink, plum, chocolate and dark cherry in this colourway, and I'm thrilled with how it's knitted up in this garment.
The buttons are off an old leather coat of mine that has not seen the light of day since this little one's mum and I used to knock around the gigs and bars, so not only do they match the yarn *perfectly*; they also have some resonance to different times
phew...now I'm done!
