[c]’s cardigan

Lovely baby boy [c] was born last autumn to my dear friend [k], and finally, I’ve found the time and perfect little pattern for making him the obligatory cardigan:

Pattern: Carl’s Cardigan by PetiteKnit
Yarn: King Cole Merino Blend 4 Ply [colour: 49 clerical]
Needles: 4mm
Buttons: Textile Garden
[More project details on Ravelry]

I love the vintage look the smocking stitch has to it, as well as the 3D-effect it creates. I had to struggle quite a bit to understand how the stitch works and how to get the tension right [much cursing and unravelling was done in the process], but am quite pleased now with the result – not only is the pattern pretty, it also creates an extremely elastic fabric, which will be perfect for growing along with baby [c].

Now off to the next tiny project in my backlog, which will involve green yarn and a hood…

    Baby boy Cyril loves the warm and cosy wool of the cardigan, his mom the beautiful colour which makes his eyes look more grey than blue! Thank you so much, my dear friend!
