Mabel's Closet Pattern Preview: Cradle Cardigan
This little cardigan started it all...I'd had it on the needles since I first got pregnant. I was playing around with color work for the yoke when Carrie gently reminded me what my design work is all about: keeping it simple. And so Cradle Cardigan found it's way, a cardigan fit for baby with the simple spirit of many of my designs for women. Mabel is 3 months old in the above photograph, wearing the 0 - 6 month size. Here she is in the same size at 5 months.
As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I will be hosting a knit-a-long for this sweater on the blog via video beginning on the 26th. So when you go to purchase Mabel's Closet on the 19th, grab a few skeins of Chickadee, too, if you want to participate!
