I finally finished a project for April, and I really like it. It is a baby cardigan in size 3-6months. It is made from Mellowspun by Mary Maxim. This is a nice yarn to work with, and I have used it many times before. It is not a luxury yarn and is 100% acrylic, but it is very soft and washes very well – a good characteristic for baby items.
The pattern is from one of my favourite pattern books.
I brought three knitting pattern books from Canada, and they are all Sirdar. I guess I like that style. It is called a baby book, but most patterns go from newborn to at least size 4. Some even go to size 8. This is the fifth pattern I have made from this book and I still like. The first were made 12 years ago (!) for G1. When I was searching for this picture, I found that there is a “Gorgeous Kids Knitting Book.” Maybe I should look into that, since I am getting to that age where not too many friends are having babies anymore.
