It’s a shame I never remember to write down notes as I am knitting, as I would then be able to publish some patterns, like for example this sweet popcorn cardigan that I made back in April for a friend’s daughter.
I loosely followed the dimensions of several jumpers to make sure that I got the sizing right, but the rest I pretty much did freestyle.
I love everything about the end result, the colour, the amount of bobbles aka popcorn, which I was sure would be too much almost the entire time I was knitting it.
I love those bobbles all lined up, they look so sweet. And that yellow is such a happy colour. Making so many bobbles does take it’s time, but it’s so worth it.
I made this to fit a child aged 6-7, so the sleeves are a bit long, but that just means my friend’s daughter is able to wear it for longer!
I used a twisted rib, where you twist the knit stitch, which makes the rib a bit stiffer. It works great!
I managed to find these buttons in my stash, which work really well with the finished cardigan, especially as I didn’t want to put something that took away from the bobbles.
I added pockets too, because 5-7 year old kids love pockets, don’t they?
