pink and girly!!

I am so used to making things for men I thought this might be a new diversion. I litttle pink cabled number for my niece.

4ply (again ... why I am addicted to 4ply is beyond me) on 4mm needles.

A mix of Cables and Bamboo stitch with a roll neck collar.

It has been made to grow into as Hannah is only two but I made a size 3 as we are just about to hit summer.

Back to the men's stuff!! ;)

Go girly sweater!! :-) She's going to love it. I think it looks terrific!!! As long as you're back to knitting something we're all happy!


That is very nice and not too girly for the right kind of guy.
Also, not pink from the picture.
I'd say purple, lilac.

Very nice knitting. I like the way you did a cable on the top of the sleeve with the purl stripes banding it in regular intervals. I think I'll keep that in mind for a future project. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

How cute! I'm sure your niece will love it. If I was knitting this, I never would have thought to do a rolled collar, but it seems to work well for this sweater. I think it would also look adorable to have an attached hood with the pattern continued up through it.

That's really cool. I just started a project as a Christmas present for my niece. It's a purple jacket with pink faux fur trim. Her favorite colors.
