A few weeks ago my son asked me to make a little gift for the newly-arrived baby girl of some friends. He thought bootees or a hat, but I had other ideas... I had been waiting for the chance to make the Baby Belle cardigan from Cosymakes. I liked it because it was different. Giles didn't want me to knit anything pink, as he thought they would have lots of that, so I looked through my stash and found two yarns that I thought would be very effective together.
And here's the finished article!
I wanted the closure to be simple, so I crocheted an edging and made ties with twisted cords.
The bouclé was a bit tricky to knit with, but I like the effect. I doubled the Sirdar denim that I used for the contrast, as it was a bit thin.
It is a little chunky, but OK. I think it looks more like a jacket than a cardigan and I'm sure it will be warm this winter (or now, if the weather doesn't get any warmer!).
