2018 seems to be the year of babies. I know of 8 babies to be born this year, so far. I’m not going to knit for all of them but for a big chunk of them at least. It’s time to revive Project Baby Love.
Project Baby Love first started in 2014 when I knew a lot of babies to be born. I ended up making 11 baby sweaters in 2014 and it looks like it might be time to make that kind of effort again. Not cardigans or sweaters necessarily but baby items. I’m thinking socks.
This baby cardigan was made to help a friend out. She was knitting it and got stuck just above the sleeves so I cast on one of my own to see if I could be of any help. I don’t know what happened to my friend’s cardigan but this one turned out okay. The construction is quite clever, there is only two ends to weave in in the end, which is very sympathique. The sleeves are knit back and forth and then crocheted together. It’s not the smoothest way of attaching the sleeves together but it works on a cardigan this size. I wouldn’t use it for an adult sweater but as I said, it works for a baby one.
My friend Stina helped pick out the buttons. It turned out very cute, I think.
