Ever since I saw this MillaMia pattern I've wanted to make it for Connor. So I was most pleased to get it as a freebie in a magazine at last year's craft fair (not that I'd mind buying the book, they are lovely patterns!)
Pattern: Niklas cardigan by MillaMia, from the book Bright Young Things. Nice pattern, easy to follow, all made in pieces - which I didn't mind - smaller pieces seem to go faster! (just like red stripes!). I made the 2-3 yo size.
Time: 6 February 2012 - 29 March 2012
Modifications: I made the body of the cardigan longer - everyone always says you need extra length in knits for babies and toddlers. And I'm hoping it will fit him for longer than one season. The extra length (about 5cm/2") meant I had to add an extra buttonhole, which fortunately worked out to be just at the point where the decreases start for the v-neck of the cardigan. Nice one!
I planned on making myself at least 4 cardis this year! Heh! I'd better get a move on, since I haven't even started the first cardi for myself and it's already 1/4 of the way through the year!
