While I knit on the next pink cardigan, I figure I might show you the last cardigan I finished. Once in a yarn shop about two years ago I found this yarn. It had a gray base and some balls had a pink contrast and some had a blue. I bought both colors and they have now resulted in two little cardigans. Me Made ended up with the pink one and now that I found out that a friend of mine is having a baby in August, she will get the blue one.
I thought the blue one wouldn’t be as fun to knit as the pink one (indeed I do love pink much more than I love blue) but that wasn’t the case at all. The stitches just flew off the needles and the cardigan was done in no time, despite the attention being shared with Me Made as well as other knitting projects (Me Made is obviously not a knitting project but more of a receiver of knitted items).
I chose the same pattern as for the pink one and I think they turned out very pretty. Too bad Me Made and the new little baby won’t be able to wear them next to each other, that would have been adorable!
Instead we’ll have to settle for the two cardigans next to each other. That’s pretty darn good too. The only difference between them is that I chose buttons in different colors for the blue one.
Pattern: Peanut Warmer by Taiga Hilliard Designs. Yarn: Austermann Merino 105 Color, color 305. Mods: No contrasting purl rows, just plain stockinette stitch and I also changed the increases to a M1 instead of kfb.
