FO Friday: Toddler Cardigan

A good friend of mine who regularly orders things for her girls, put in another order, this time for a cardigan for her eldest daughter in November of this year (on a side note we went to her daughters birthday party last weekend).

It’s a lovely pattern, and one I had to pick from the DROPS Children patterns rather than the DROPS Baby range.

The pattern is knitted with two strands of DROPS Alpaca, so it has a lovely soft quality. The two strands mean that it was a very quick knit, using a 4.5mm needle.

My friend picked the colour, which I absolutely love. It’s so nice and not typically girly, but looks so gorgeous when knitted up.

I used some buttons that I had in my stash, which I love too. They just add extra beauty to the cardigan.

And the shirring at the top is created by knitting the double strands in single strands, it creates a very pretty effect.

And here’s an FO appreciation photo of my friends daughter wearing her new cardigan, and another one of her and her sister, both of them wearing my creations.
