The knitty thing is done and blocked.
The little girlie tried it on and loved it.
I whipped out my camera for a shot.
And she didn't want to play!
So this is as good as it gets for a modelled peek at the new cardi:
And to continue a them I couldn't get a decent shot of it off the girlie either:
So yes, it's snuggly and cosy, and bright and cheerful, and fits well and has a cute little hoodie, but you're just going to have to take my word for it!
The pattern is loosely adapted from the cardi I made Sophie just the other day. This time it's for a 2 year old teensy girl so a lot more snuggly. And smaller too.
This time with an added hood.
And buttons to the very bottom to keep my little miss extra warm.
Yarn - Sirdar Click aran
Shade - 0110
Amount - just over 3x 50g skeins
Cost - £1.39 per skein, so £5.56 in total with about 25g left over.
Needle size - 4mm and 5mm
Pattern - sizing taken from the pattern for the previous cardi, Sirdar 2275, but with the left and right fronts and the hood made up as I went along. I made a few notes so I guess I could write it up at some point.........
So that's about it with the bargain Sirdar Click. Well apart from the 11 skeins I have left to knit up a cardi for Emma....... Hmm, maybe later, I think the Granny Stripe is feeling a little neglected. And besides, I have an idea for a new blanket I want to start on.........
