Back in 2012 my friend Heidy ordered one cable coat for her little girl Sophia, doesn’t she look adorable in it? Well, Heidy liked it so much she ordered another one in navy blue with a matching beret.
This is a great DROPS pattern, which I knitted using DROPS Merino Extra Fine, which calls for size 4mm needles, so a nice, quick knit.
The cables next to the buttons give the little coat a little bit of extra detail. As do the cables that are knitted along the yoke.
It’s another favourite pattern of mine, mainly because it’s all knitted in one, just a bit of seaming to do under the arms and that’s it. The best about knitting DROPS patterns in my opinion, they often don’t call for a lot of seaming and sewing.
The beret also looks great. And is a very straightforward knit.
I love how the decreases make a very pretty crown.
And Sophia looks just soo adorable in her little ensemble.
