I started this cardigan last November and I got on with it really quickly and I was on course for it to be sent to Father Christmas for little L but then I started the front panels. Urgh .... it was a simple enough pattern but I just kept going wrong. And I am rubbish at taking work back (I can never get the stitches back on and the right way round) so each time I just had to pull it all back and start again. So as with many of my projects it got put to the side whilst I got on with other new projects.
I picked it up in January and having established that it would be huge on her there seemed no rush so again it sat on the shelf unloved. Until last night, I finished it finally.
I haven't blocked it yet (not sure if I will bother) and I'm pretty happy. I love the moss stitch ribbing and the simple garter stitch edging to the collar. If I did it again I would probably do the button band in the same size needle as the body and just pick up stitches evenly rather than a set number because the button bands are too pinched. Also it is pretty big for an 18 month size ?? It will fit her one day
I am currently knitting this cardigan for me but without the stripes! Bye for now
