Miss ME was in need of a cute sweater.
Or, I was in need of making a cute sweater!
That seems more accurate.
I have long admired patterns by Mon Petit Violon.
In July she was having a sale, so I purchased four patterns:
At the beginning of September, my LYS was having a 50% off sale and I picked up five hanks of Cascade 220 Superwash Sport yarn in Cotton Candy and Lemon.
Perfect colors for a little girl’s cardigan.
I purchased all the pink and yellow available, I should have purchased the orange too…live and learn!
Although I found the yarn a tad splity, I love the colors and the softness.
I found some buttons I LOVE and I think they work well!
(I am drawing a complete blank where I purchased the buttons.)
This is a very simple pattern utilizing HDC and DC.
It is the wrapping of a HDC around a HDC that gives it such lovely detail.
I used all three hanks of Cotton Candy and one hank of Lemon.
I chose not to make it long sleeved as I felt the Lemon was a nice accent on the sleeves and it would look strange to have full sleeves in yellow.
I am so chuffed with how it turned out!
The only change I made was hook size.
I started and completed the yoke using a 4.5mm hook.
I then increased to a 5mm hook for the body and the edging.
It could do with a good blocking, but since a 2 1/2 year old is going to wear it, I figure it is not necessary.
With the remaining hank of Lemon, I plan on making the Pearl Cloche Hat.
I hope to have a picture of Miss ME wearing it soon!
Although this particular pattern was not on my Year of Projects list, one of my goals was to make Miss ME clothing so…
