For Little Emma

TheKnittingMill's picture

I knit this little cardigan for my best friend's little girl, Emma for her first birthday. I got the pattern from Lion Brand's website (free pattern) and knit it with a worsted acrylic/wool blend. I thought about going all wool, but I decided that with kids and dogs a little acrylic in the mix can really help hold the piece up to repeated washings. My best friend LOVED it and said it fit perfectly with a little room to grow. She promises to send me pics with Emma wearing it so I'll post those as soon as I get them.

Thanks Mario! I appreciate your help!

It looks great! Did you have to sew on the arms; or did you pick up stitches? How long did it take?

Thanks! I sewed the arms. I'm working on a sweater for my partner right now that's my first attempt at no seams! It probably took me two to three weeks to complete while working on a couple of other projects in between.
