I've been enjoying making small things for small people- it's easy to make something quickly and really concentrate on colours and techniques. My good friend Hannah's daughter Beatrice turned two earlier this month, and again I turned to the same Nicki Trench Flower Power cardigan pattern from Cute and Easy Crocheted Baby Clothes. I have to say, I really must watch my tension as I find Nicki Trench patterns come up very small. However, Lily-Beatrice is small so it worked out fine. Again I omitted the flowers and opted for a striped yoke-I rather love this. I also shorted the sleeves, making it perfect for Spring.
The yarn is Stylecraft Special DK in Forest, gold, old rose, walnut and parchment and the buttons were from my LYS. LOVE IT! Can I make one for me? We shall see!
