Puerperium Cardigan

Ravelled here . The Puerperium Cardy. Inspired by several other knitters from last weeks linkup – i’ve wanted to try this little pattern for ages. I have loved every stitch too, its simple, easy, and loving the way it shapes itself. I love knitting in the round. Linking up again with Ginny\’s crew.

I have decided to use the leftover scrap yarn pieces from my Baby Cashmerino Blanket, crocheted a few months ( years ) past.  The project only uses a small amount of yarn ( 20 grams ) and so scrap yarn makes do quite nicely — if you don’t mind a thousand little bits hanging out to weave in later. :)  I do love how it matches my blanket, cute cute cute.  If you have scrap dk yarn about and need a quick handmade for a newborn, this is it !  Coming up…. little pants to match !

  2. Oh, the dangly ends. Not so keen on those. I’ve started knitting them in as I go. Gorgeous cardigan. Looks so cuddly.

    The buttons, I used, were from my local craft shop. Hoping to make some in the Autumn, when our cherry tree comes down.
