In late Summer 2013 I made a couple of things for a good friend from Australia. She was had a little boy in September 2013. I’ll post the three items that I made for him in the next three days.
First off here’s a cardigan I made, another DROPS pattern. I decided on something that used cotton rather than wool as he was born just on the cups of the Australian Summer.
I remember knitting this, it’s really nice and quick and I love how the lacy pattern looks. It’s a good cardigan for a Summer baby or one from hotter climates.
Because I didn’t know at the time what my friend was having I picked this light pistachio colour and I love how it looks. I have to say, some of the pictures don’t do the colour justice.
And here are some close up shots of the finished piece.
