Little Boy Blue Cardigan
For Sunday best or visits only - this little cardigan will fit a baby boy once he is crawling and toddling. In other words he will get it grubby in no time. Navy blue would have been far more practical, but this is what I had in the wool stash, so pale blue it is.
I don't think I will ever stop loving random yarn. It keeps you knitting until way past bedtime.
For the raglan shoulder shaping I tried a different method of decreasing from previous cardigans knitted in the same stitch. Sooner or later I shall decide which method I like best and stick to it. This is one of the reasons that I knit so many little cardies, so I can try out different stitches and keep ideas in reserve for bigger projects.
Of course, there is the element of fun. I couldn't resist these spotty buttons.

Thanks Cheryl! I now have one baby boy and one baby girl cardy set aside for the next time I have to give a present.Delete
Wonderful little sweater. I love the knitting combination of color strips and pattern of your knitted stitches. I like knitting, but just can't seem to get a pattern to the end stage.ReplyDelete
Thank you! It is the fun with the colours that keeps you going.Delete

They're a hoot, aren't they?Delete
